The Minister will be aware that the two Liberty steel plants, including Clydebridge in my constituency, will be heavily involved in the supply of turbine casings for tidal lagoon projects and tubular steel structures for offshore wind turbines.

Will the Minister commit to revisiting the Government’s approach to the subsidy of such renewables?
