Plan B must include all options, including taking the UK business into public ownership

GMB, the steel union, has responded to the government rejecting a request for £170 million in financial support for Liberty Steel. 

Ross Murdoch, GMB National Officer, said: 

“Now that the Government has stated it will not provide the bailout sought by Sanjeev Gupta, GMB will now seek an urgent meeting with Kwasi Kwarteng, Secretary of State for BEIS to discuss ‘Plan B’. 

‘This must include all options, including taking the UK business into public ownership.”
