This Government has taken unprecedented action to help our steel industry.

We’re cutting electricity costs by hundreds of millions, tackling unfair trade and are the first EU country to introduce new flexibility in public procurement.

We have also offered an unparalleled package of support to secure the long term future of Tata Steel’s UK operations.

That is what the steel industry has asked for and that is what we are delivering.
