Tom reacts to Thamesteel sale

Commenting on the news that Thamesteel has been sold out of administration, Tom Blenkinsop MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Steel, said:

“This is fantastic news for Community union members and the people of Sheerness who fought a hard ‘Save our Steel’ campaign since the closure in January. Their efforts have secured the opportunity for a new generation of steelworkers on the Isle of Sheppey.

“In parliament, we secured a debate on the issue to let the government know the importance steelmaking to local communities and this good news only confirms that.”
