A Tory Business Minister has made his pledge that he will be supporting Britain’s steel industry in spite of the conservatives who have been betraying the UK steelworkers. The importance of the vital sector was trumpeted by Andrew Stephenson while he signed the UK Steel Charter in promise to back up the firms of the UK.
Let us get to know some more details
The Government that was there for a long period of time was blasted by the campaigners of buying steel from abroad instead of the factories. The Government’s newfound loyalty to British steelmakers revealed Mr. Stephenson while he made his commitment to the Business Department to the charter at a launch event which was held in the Parliament.
The amount of UK-produced steel which is being used in construction ventures needs to be maximized. Confirming the backing of the department, which has been exclusively released last week by the Mirror, the company chiefs and the MPs from steel communities and union leaders were being told by Mr. Stephenson that he found it pleasurable that he could sign the Steel Charter on behalf of the Department for Business.
Later he also added that this sector tends to have a very strong history in the United Kingdom. Steel will always be fundamental to this country that is making its move ahead. It was also said that the Steel industry matters a lot and that it is one industry that the Government wants to put their support into.
In January the Mirror was told how less than half of the steel bought by Whitehall back then was brought from the UK. Even after this, Mr. Stephenson was shameless that he claimed that the Government was on the side of British industry.
The Labor MP Anna Turley said that the minister who intends on signing up to the Steel charter of the UK is allowed to do but it will take more than warm words so that the commitment of the government can be demonstrated to the industry.
Last year less than half of their required steel from Britain was brought by the Government and over and over again there were key contracts which used imported steel especially for the vessels and vehicles of the military. There is a steel industry in Britain which is both innovative as well as strong and it has been staffed by a workforce that is skilled for all the work.
It is now time to put the money where their mouth is and be a backbone to the British steel industry. The All-Party Parliamentary Group’s vice-chairman, MP Stephen Kinnock said that the real questions exist in whether he will be able to keep up to his warm words and match them with his actions.
The steelworkers have been betrayed and strung along by the government of the UK and they are still in doubts if they will ever be able to avail their benefits.
