Angela Eagle MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills, responding to the announcement from the Official Receiver that the Redcar steelworks will undergo a hard closure, said:

“This is devastating news from the Official Receiver that steelmaking on Teesside will end.

“The Government should never have allowed the situation to descend to this point, and must explain why they have continually sat on their hands and not taken any action to support this strategically important site. 

“It is completely unacceptable that this Government’s ideological decision not to have an industrial strategy is costing high-skilled jobs in the country.”
