Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with senior executives in the steel industry in Wales; and if he will make a statement. (95229)

I have had discussions with both the chief executive of Corus and the chairman of Tata Steel regarding the proposed acquisition of Corus by Tata, and have sought assurances regarding Corus’s commitment to Wales and the status of Corus workers and pensioners in Wales. I remain in close contact with both companies and will closely monitor the progress of the proposed takeover.
