Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Manufacturing

Mike Wood: Will the Secretary of State bring forward details of the package of support that will be put in place to help those workers in the Black Country affected by the collapse of Caparo, including 54 in my constituency, so that the skills can be retained within the black country engineering sector?

 

Sajid Javid The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills

My hon. Friend is right to raise the issue. It is hugely important that workers who are affected by the crisis in the steel industry get whatever help can be provided. We have rolled out plans for support across the country, and we are talking to local leaders to see what more we can do.
