Don Valley MP Caroline Flint has offered beer and sandwiches to the Government’s Steel Support Group as she welcomed vital industry talks taking place in Doncaster to seek a buyer for British Steel, owners of the Scunthorpe steelworks.

During an urgent question in the Commons, the MP asked when further talks would begin with the whole steel industry and unions to establish a Sector deal for the UK steel industry.

The MP challenged Business Secretary Greg Clark over whether there were any barriers to opening talks aimed at securing a sector deal  - an industry-wide investment and development plan for steel which would seek to place the UK steel industry on a level playing field with its European rivals.
