The Union union has criticised the Government after it decided not to apply for the European Commission's permission to use state funds to help the Coryton oil refinery. The refinery's parent company went into liquidation in January putting hundreds of jobs at risk.
The Government could have subsidised the refinery until a new buyer was found, but it would have needed to get EU permission first. However, the Department for Energy and Climate Change has decided not to go ahead and said it would not be sustainable to provide help.
