The All Party Parliamentary Group on Steel and Metal Related Industries has written to us with a copy of this report. We appreciate the time and work that has gone into this document which puts forward interesting points and recommendations. These align with the key objectives industry has asked of Government, and we have made good progress in delivering energy cost relief – paying £133m to the steel sector - EU emissions regulations, tackling the dumping of steel in the EU, reforming procurement guidelines and publishing a pipeline of procurement opportunities for the steel sector. Our goal is to work with the UK steel sector to create the right environment for investment and growth. We will continue to engage with the All Party Group as we seek to find a long-term viable solution for the industry.
