Thousands of jobs in the UK’s steel industry are at risk as the EU continues to be slow to respond to the dumping of cheap Chinese steel into the European market.
Eurocrats have been investigating how to address this since 2008, but have taken no action.
EU state aid rules means that the UK Government is very limited in its ability to support the steel industry. The EU’s delays have cost the UK’s steel industry £6.2 million and UK industry as a whole £41.1 million.
So long as we’re in the EU we have given away control over key areas of our economy like trade policy. If we Vote Leave on 23 June, we will take back control and get the powers we need to help our struggling industries.
