Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...Britain. The Gresford hymn is still played and sung annually at the Durham Miners’ Gala to commemorate the 266 miners killed underground at the Gresford pit in 1934. Steelworkers from Merthyr to Shotton, Sheffield and Motherwell had common interests, and workers in the shipyards of Belfast and Glasgow, Liverpool and the Tyne shared common dangers. However, as those great UK-wide...

Forced Adoption in the Uk (12 Jul 2018)

Alison McGovern: ...whom have families who are affected and all of whom must have been profoundly changed by the experience. I have come to see that Ann’s story is typical of many. Ann’s dad was a steelworker at Shotton, which is quite near my constituency, and the family were not at all wealthy. Ann became unexpectedly pregnant in 1966, when an older man with whom she worked forced himself upon her. Her...

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment (25 Jun 2018)

Chris Ruane: It was a Tory Government who shed more than 8,000 jobs at Shotton in 1980—the biggest lay-off in one day in British industrial history. We will see history repeat itself, with 6,500 jobs lost at Broughton, if the Secretary of State does not pull his finger out. Why are he and his party prepared to sacrifice those Airbus workers’ jobs and futures for party political ideology?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Heathrow Expansion: Benefits for Wales (13 Jun 2018)

Alun Cairns: ...that he is keen to gain a logistical hub in Scotland, which demonstrates that Heathrow airport expansion is a project not just for London and the south-east, but for the whole of the UK. I was in Shotton just a couple of weeks ago showing Heathrow airport as one of the potential sites for a logistical hub, so I suspect that we may be in competition.

Social Mobility (Wales) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (19 Dec 2017)

Chris Ruane: .... That compares with 33p in Austria, 31p in France, and just 5p in Latvia. In north Wales, the majority of unemployment blackspots are on the coast—Holyhead, Bangor, Colwyn Bay, Rhyl, Flint, Shotton. If rail prices were more affordable that would make accessing job opportunities along the entire north Wales coast, and indeed in north-west England, far easier. Enabling young people to...

Steel Industry - Question for Short Debate (25 Apr 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ..., so when we talk about steel we are talking about many other industries as well. The noble Lord, Lord Jones, referred to steel as a foundation industry. He is absolutely right. He spoke about Shotton. I visited Shotton only a month ago. It is wonderful to see the coatings plant there, but it is pretty sad to see where once there was a great integrated steelworks. The noble Lord, Lord...

Industrial Strategy Consultation (23 Jan 2017)

Chris Matheson: ...plan to close that gap? While he is at the Dispatch Box, will he take the opportunity to scotch the recent press reports and confirm that all the steel in HS2 will be made at UK plants, including Shotton, where many of my constituents work?

EU Referendum: UK Steel Industry — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

Mark Tami: I apologise for not being here at the start of the debate. My hon. Friend talked about pensioners. Shotton steelworks is in my constituency, and there are a lot of pensioners because the steelworks used to be far bigger. Many still live in the area, so the change in spending power over time will affect not only them but the whole area. We have to think about that as well.

Steel Industry — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 May 2016)

Christina Rees: ...those products and systems, such as solar integrated roofing products and new forms of heating system, are already entering the marketplace. Steel from Port Talbot is being turned into systems in Shotton. No matter what the asset base or ownership of any future UK steel model, technology and innovation are critical, and it is equally critical that such technology and innovation are in...

Written Answers — Wales Office: Iron and Steel: Manufacturing Industries (22 Apr 2016)

Alun Cairns: ...efforts the UK Government is making to achieve a long-term future for the industry. I have had meetings recently with companies which form part of Tata supply chain. I visited the Tata site at Shotton on Monday and am visiting the Tata sites at Trostre and Llanwern later this week as a continued effort to keep the dialogue open with the steel making communities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Steel Industry (13 Apr 2016)

Nia Griffith: As the Secretary of State well knows, at sites across Wales, such as Shotton, Llanwern, Orb, Trostre and Port Talbot, Tata steelworkers produce a whole range of specialist products. What assurances has he obtained from Tata that it will not siphon off the production of the most profitable lines to their plants aboard? What guarantees has he received that the intellectual property will remain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Steel Industry: Government Support (13 Apr 2016)

Mark Tami: Yesterday, the Business Secretary said we need to work together, cross-party, on this, and the Secretary of State for Wales has just said the same. I understand that he is to visit Shotton on Monday—when was he intending to tell me?

Uk Steel Industry (12 Apr 2016)

Mark Tami: ...UK steel industry, not only Port Talbot. The media have a habit of describing the whole UK steel industry as loss-making, but that is far from the truth for a lot of those plants that add value. Shotton steelworks galvanises and colour-coats steel. It is a profitable business that employs 800 people—quality jobs that are vital to the economy of Deeside. Profitable it may be, but that...

Update on the UK Steel Industry - Statement (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Jones: My Lords, will the Minister acknowledge the huge contribution made in north-east Wales by Shotton steelworks, which is still highly profitable, very high-tech and a centre of excellence in steel making? Perhaps I may remind her that in 1980 Shotton steelworks was an integrated plant employing 13,000 people. It lost overnight, in Europe’s biggest single redundancy exercise in living memory,...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

David Jones: ...railway line that runs between Wrexham and Bidston, connecting the two enterprise zones at Wirral Waters and Deeside. Electrification of that stretch of line, particularly between Bidston and Shotton, would provide a relatively inexpensive, but highly desirable, piece of infrastructure. It would put Deeside industrial estate within commuting distance of the centre of Liverpool, again...

Uk Steel Industry (29 Feb 2016)

Justin Madders: north-west Wales and north-west England that rely on the industry. Does the hon. Gentleman recognise that there is a wider impact, with some 2,000 jobs relying directly or indirectly on the Shotton plant alone, and that it is important to take a holistic view?

Steel Sector — Statement (18 Jan 2016)

Lord Wigley: ...possibility of being able to create a joint public and private sector venture between the Government of Wales and Tata, and because of the high quality and specialist steels that are being made in Shotton, Trostre, Llanwern and Port Talbot, this could be a flyer. In the past, such investment by government has been allowed in Italy and Germany within European rules. Will the Minister and...

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day] — Universal Credit Work Allowance (6 Jan 2016)

Eilidh Whiteford: ...there will inevitably be regional disparities in the areas where a higher proportion of claimants have been migrated. Why should people living in Hammersmith, Rugby, Inverness, Harrogate, Bath and Shotton—the areas where universal credit has been rolled out first—receive less support, on average, than those in the towns and cities that are last in the queue? The Government admit that...

Road and Rail Infrastructure (North Wales) (21 Oct 2015)

David Jones: I too commend my hon. Friend for securing this important debate. Does he agree that a very effective piece of electrification would be that of the line between Bidston and Shotton, which would link two industrial zones, one on Wirral Waters and the other on Deeside?
