Redcar Steelworks


Anna Soubry: I always give a straight answer to a question. I honestly do not know the answer, but I will make inquiries and write to the hon. Gentleman and everybody else who is concerned. I must make it clear, however, that I, the Business Secretary and the Prime Minister are as one on this.

John Stevenson (Carlisle) (Con): Clearly, we are all concerned about the loss of jobs at Redcar and the impact on individuals and families, but would the Minister agree that the only way to create new jobs and businesses is to invest properly in infrastructure and skills, and will she make this a priority for Redcar?

Anna Soubry: Yes, absolutely, and that is why we have put this package together, which, as I say, is worth about £44,000 to each worker.
