British Steel’s service centre for Ireland is located at Lisburn in my constituency, and those jobs are vital for our local economy. I echo the comments of other right hon. and hon. Members in encouraging the Government to look more closely at a sector deal for the steel industry. As Jeremy Lefroy said, the sector is vital for the UK economy, and we encourage the Government to go the extra mile.
