Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Government Strategic Support (15 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: My hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) is right: there is a crisis in UK steel making and 2,000 jobs in my constituency are at risk. I have secured a Backbench Business debate on Thursday, and I would be grateful if Ministers could come to pledge their support for UK steel making. We have to see action on energy prices and business rates. If we do not, UK steel will have no...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I would like to go back to the points about the financial robustness of housing associations and surpluses and so on. David, could you tell us a bit more about the geographical disparity in that? It is my understanding that, particularly in terms of assets, housing associations in London will be substantially better off than housing associations in, say, Teesside in my area. Could you say...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I have been harrumphing all the way through because so many of the questions I was going to ask have basically been answered. I was going to ask the panel a very simple question. Do you think it is possible to measure child poverty and life chances, without taking financial income into account? I think we have heard a very emphatic “No”, “No”, and “No”, although I am not sure...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: What are your views on—this is one of the most controversial aspects of the Bill—limiting tax credits to two children? What do you think the impact of that will be, particularly for the most disadvantaged and larger families?

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I beg to move, That this House recognises the unprecedented gravity of the challenges currently facing the UK steel industry; and calls on the Government to hold a top-level summit with the key players from the steel industry to seek meaningful and urgent solutions to the crisis. Forgive me, Mr Speaker, but I am new to this place. Should I continue?

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for allowing Back Benchers time for this crucial debate. I also thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting me the opportunity to raise this issue on the Floor of the House. This is an issue of huge significance not only to my constituents, but to the economic security of the United Kingdom and its global position in manufacturing. I thank the Minister for...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that there has been an ongoing discussion about that issue for a great deal of time. The Government have taken some steps, which I will mention in a moment, but there is much more that they can do and they have promised things that we are still waiting to see delivered. I am glad to hear that the Minister is going to China next week to discuss the dumping of...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: It certainly has made the situation worse. I believe it has added approximately 10% to the prices of the UK steel sector. I come before the House to call on the Government to act on the factors that I have outlined. I will set out five key actions that the Government could agree to today to demonstrate their commitment to the British steel industry. First, they must fully implement the...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. This is a difficult time and there are actions that the Government could take to build resilience. There is a future for the UK steel industry. I am sure that everybody—this is certainly true of those on the Opposition Benches—agrees with that. We hope to hear from the Government that their commitment is the same.

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I commend my hon. Friend for his passion and commitment. He is absolutely right. There are things coming on stream on Teesside, such as the carbon capture and storage facility, that will struggle if we do not have the steelworks in Redcar. We are committed to our climate change commitments and the steel sector is doing its best to make a difference. Secondly, the Government must bring...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: My hon. Friend is right, and we are always diligent in undertaking our European obligations. All we ask for today is a level playing field with our European competitors.

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I am afraid I disagree with the hon. Gentleman. Teesside and the north-east is wholly dependent on a huge range of support from UK business, and that is a huge part of our exports. It would be wholly detrimental for us not to be part of the European Union. There would be a significant opportunity for the UK steel sector if the Government were to support and insist on local steel being used in...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I would like to draw attention to the role played by the Community union and the workforce, when the Redcar steelworks was mothballed in 2010, in securing the plant, finding a buyer in SSI and ensuring its future. That was absolutely fantastic and is a perfect example of a great union working with all parties to secure the future of the industry.

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: Just yesterday I met Forewind, the company building the Dogger Bank wind farm a bit further out from our constituencies. That will come on stream in the next couple of years. It said to me that there will be a lot of steel involved. We have everything here on Teesside: we have the infrastructure, the skills and the steel. I hope to God that in the coming years we will have a blast furnace...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: Let me draw on a comment that was made by the hon. Lady and by my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Tom Blenkinsop). It is great that we are championing success in industry and engineering, particularly in the north-east, but we must also be there in times of crisis.

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: I want briefly to say a huge thank you to everybody who has participated in the debate. As a new Member, I have been moved by the passion, commitment, diligence and depth of knowledge, and by the willingness of people to work together to do something that is in the interests of all our constituents. We have heard powerful voices from around the country—from Scotland, Wales and across...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry (17 Sep 2015)

Anna Turley: As my hon. Friend says, they should be bold and look at everything that they can do. It is in their hands to see where the money can be found. We have heard the strength of the feeling today—the money must be found and action must be taken. I thank everybody who has contributed. When my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough was speaking so passionately about the history and heritage of...
