British Steel - Public meeting this Sunday

I'm looking forward to joining Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen, tomorrow at a public meeting to update everyone regarding the situation at British Steel.

Yesterday I held good talks with Chris McDonald from the Materials Processing Institute, who are great experts about the steel industry on Teesside.

On Monday Ben and I will be back in Doncaster for the next meeting of the British Steel Support Group, which brings together the Secretary of State, the industry and the unions.

On Wednesday I will also be meeting the Prime Minister to discuss the situation. So there's lots to catch up on - and plenty of reasons for optimism and resolution.

The meeting is at Carlin How Working Mens Club at 3pm on Sunday - please come along.
