Save our Steel - Mirror's campaign

Up to 15,000 workers risk losing their jobs as our steel industry fights for survival.

The Mirror has launched a Save Our Steel campaign and we call on David Cameron to take decisive action to protect and revive British steel plants - before it's too late.

We call on Mr Cameron to do 4 things:

1 An immediate cut in business rates for the steel industry and a fairer system of valuation 
2 Give the steel industry a break from green taxes and high energy bills 
3 Block China from dumping cheap steel on the UK market 
4 Buy British. Major infrastructure and construction projects and all government-backed contracts should look to use British-made steel

This petition was delivered to:
  • Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party
    David Cameron MP
