Parliamentarians visit British Steel at Scunthorpe

In two separate visits Nusrat Ghani, Minister of State at the Department for Business and Trade, to British Steel, and Sarah Jones, Shadow Minister for Industry and Decarbonisation, have visited British Steel at Scunthorpe.

Both toured the site and discussed decarbonisation plans.

British Steel says that whilst decarbonisation is a major challenge for the business, it remains committed to transforming itself into a green and sustainable company, believing electrification will provide a rapid and sustainable solution to the decarbonisation challenge in addition to providing support for sustainable employment.

Owners Jingye have already invested £330m in British Steel in less than four years and say they are committed to the unprecedented investment decarbonisation requires.
