Following today’s session with Tata Steel, Paul Davies MS, Chair of the Senedd’s Economy Committee said:
“Today’s session with Tata Steel bosses is deeply disheartening and devastating for Wales’ steel industry.
“Despite huge opposition, and the terrible effects the closure of the blast furnaces will have on the workforce, their families and communities across south Wales, Tata are unequivocal and are not listening.
“This week the whole Senedd unanimously agreed that there is a viable future for the blast furnace – this has been completely ignored.
“Today we are calling on Tata to reconsider their position and to keep the blast furnace open.”
