Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Redcar Coke Ovens (13 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: This Government have overseen a tragedy for the people of my constituency and the region. This is an act of industrial vandalism for British manufacturing. We are talking about potentially as many as 6,000 jobs in the local area, but this is about more than jobs and livelihoods: this is about people’s identity, their pride, their dignity and their respect in work, and it is about the...

Women and Equalities: Redcar Steelworks (15 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: The Minister is overseeing the death of 170 years of steelmaking on Teesside. It does not have to be the end—the site is still viable. You’ve thrown the towel in. I have literally just got off the phone to people on the site. German companies are willing to buy foundry coke that we can produce in the coke ovens. That sells at £520 a tonne, compared to £190 for ordinary coke. The site is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: On 16 September, the Prime Minister told this House that he would do everything he could to keep steelmaking on Teesside. He failed. Now we learn that the £30 million support package that the Government promised for retraining and economic regeneration is not only going towards the statutory redundancies of those who lost their jobs: I have an email from the Minister with responsibility for...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: I was proud to secure a Backbench Business Committee debate on the crisis in the steel industry. It took place just one day before the Redcar steelworks paused production, yet we were accused by the Minister for the northern powerhouse of “showboating”. Does my hon. Friend think that that is an appropriate description for a parliamentary debate?

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: A lot of the conversation has been about the price of steel as the reason why SSI went under. We are talking about coke and, as my hon. Friend said, there were companies in Germany willing to buy all the foundry coke that we could make in those coke ovens. It was selling at over £500 a tonne, compared with the £100 a tonne cost for making it. That was a profitable business which could have...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: It feels tragic to speak in this debate on the future of the steel industry because, as my hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey (Ms Eagle) said in her introductory comments, our steel industry has gone—175 years of proud history and heritage that built the world, from bridges to stadiums to buildings of great note, has gone. That future is no more. That is the tragedy of which all hon....

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: I could not agree more with my hon. Friend. The blast furnace and the coke ovens are national assets. They are part of British industry and manufacturing, and they are strategically important to our economy. They could and should have been preserved. I want to talk briefly about two outstanding issues that are causing a great deal of concern in my constituency. The first is the training that...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point. We should look at how the Germans support and respect industry and manufacturing.

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: Absolutely. If they do it, why can’t we? I totally agree with the hon. Gentleman. We should also look at how the Germans support industry throughout their education system. He makes an important point. The training is not coming through and plenty of people are coming to me—I have a huge postbag from people who are not accessing the training and support that they need. For example, Tom,...

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Steel Industry (28 Oct 2015)

Anna Turley: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. One of the great tragedies of this situation is the fact that 50 apprentices were due to start on the day that SSI paused production. Steel is a viable industry with a bright future, so engineering is exactly the sort of field we should be encouraging our young people into. The Government should be giving them confidence that they have an industrial...
