Port Talbot's MP, Hywel Francis has highlighted what he calls the unfair energy costs and climate change policies faced by energy intensive industries like steel. Earlier he had said the 500 redundancies at Port Talbot were grim news.
The Government must do more to help energy intensive industries like steel with their costs – other European countries assist their industries far more. The Government should also address the high business rates faced by the steel industry, and place greater emphasis on infrastructure programmes as they do in France and Germany. I shall be working closely with management and unions locally and nationally and with all levels of Government to secure the long term future of steelmaking in Port Talbot.
