Aberavon MP Hywel Francis says he's had cross-party backing from other MPs from steel-making areas to push for a meeting with the Prime Minister. It follows last week's news that Tata steel is to cut more than 500 jobs at its Welsh plants.
The cuts would mostly affect Tata's Port Talbot plant which is in Hywel Francis' constituency. He says he and other MPs will push for an urgent meeting with David Cameron.
I was pleased the meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Steel
today agreed unanimously to call for an urgent meeting with the Prime
Minister to discuss problems facing the steel industry, particularly the high
energy costs it faces.
A meeting has already been agreed with the Welsh Secretary of State,
David Jones who has also agreed to visit the steelworks at Port Talbot. The
Secretary of State will meet with MPs representing steel constituencies across Wales.
