Emma said: “I was delighted to visit the Tata Steelpark in Wednesfield. This is a viable and productive plant with a committed highly-skilled workforce.”

“They have invested nearly £20 million over the last four years on the latest high-tech steel processing equipment. I saw car doors being made ready to be sent to the JLR and Mini factories. This steelworks is a vital supplier to businesses in the Black Country and wider region with over one thousand customers.

“The government seems to have finally woken up to the grave threat to the British steel industry, and I am urging them to do all they can to make sure the Steeelpark in Wednesfield has a sustainable long term future. The management, workforce and unions are united in achieving this goal.”
