Since taking up his role, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has prioritised engaging with steel companies, local MPs and other interested parties from the sector.
The Secretary of State and I are now carefully considering the best way we can work collectively together over the coming period to secure the best outcomes for our steel industry.
In the meantime, I will hold regular meetings with the steel sector, with the initial meeting due to take place before the end of the year.
