Secretary of State for Wales, Cheryl Gillan has just issued this statement following Tata Steel's decision to delay relighting the new blast furnace its building at its Port Talbot plant:
It is understandable that Tata may have to take the decision to delay the relighting of blast furnace four at Port Talbot in the light of the current business climate. TATA is operating in an extremely challenging market - both domestically and internationally, but I am re-assured that Tata is fully committed to its investment in the UK. This will be a commercial decision and I understand that there will be no job losses as a result.
At the launch of Tata Steel's £240 million Port Talbot project, Carwyn Jones said his Government would continue to work closely with Tata.
The company says the decision to look at the order books before relighting furnace 4 won't affect the rebuild project
