Public procurement has the potential to create significant business and growth opportunities and I have met with leaders of the steel industry in Wales to discuss how the industry can best be supported by encouraging the use of domestic steel in UK Government contracts. I have also held discussions on the steel industry in Wales with the Minister of State at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as well as the Welsh Government.
