Reacting to Tata Steel's announcement on job losses, Rotherham MP John Healey said: “I am disappointed that these changes mean redundancies in Rotherham. It will be a very difficult Christmas for those at risk of losing their jobs.
“Steel making has been hit as the economy has gone back into double dip recession. We need an economic policy from the government that restores growth to the economy and helps the steel industry pick up again.”
