The Government’s top priority for steel has not changed in the light of the EU referendum. The process for selling Tata Steel’s remaining UK assets remains ongoing and we continue to work closely with Tata and potential bidders so that we can secure a sustainable future.

My officials have also met with parties interested in acquiring Tata’s steel pipe mills in Hartlepool, to explain what the Government is doing to support the UK steel sector.

More widely, we are committed to working closely with the UK steel sector through the Steel Council.
