As we exit the covid crisis, we will need essential minerals to supply the UK’s steel, cement and brickworks, which will help build our homes, hospitals and infrastructure of the future.

Friend please assure the people of Blyth Valley that he and his Government will do all they can to encourage investment and support jobs in this area?
