The Government is committed to supporting a productive, vibrant and modern steel sector in the UK. As part of our support, the Government is taking wide-ranging action including compensation for energy costs, supporting innovation and clean steel production, and working with the industry to roll out steel procurement guidance.

We are monitoring the situation with Tata closely and remain in regular contact with the company, unions and other stakeholders.

We are committed to working constructively with members across the House of Commons on matters relating to the steel sector.
