Myself & @IainWrightMP are working closely with @NicDakinMP @TomBlenkinsop @tomgreatrexmp & others on the Tata issue.
With the industry in mind - a key sector - its crucial Tata works with trade unions and others to navigate a way through.
The UK steel industry supports thousands of skilled jobs and is an essential part of a modern economy with manufacturing at its heart.
The announcement by Tata Steel of the sale of its Long Products division creates uncertainty and will worry thousands of its employees...

I'll be voting this evening in the Commons to recognise Palestinian statehood as a contribution to securing a negotiated two state solution
Great speaking at the #Clapham Churches Together Service at St James Church, Park Hill, in the constituency this eve
Hardie wld have rejected NHS privatisation,cutting taxes for millionaires whilst hiking them up for others, and taking away rights at work
Invoking the name of the first Labour leader, Keir Hardie, in the name of UKIP - as Douglas Carswell did this morning - is an absurd joke
Here's the transcript of my interview with Dermot Murnaghan on @SkyNews earlier…
Will be on @SkyNews @MurnaghanSky just after 11am talking about how @UKLabour will help people get on and meet their aspirations.
Peddling false promises on immigration or sowing the seeds of fear & division goes against British values of respect,tolerance and fair play
Our job is not only to understand why people are angry but to show how we'll help people get on - ensuring work pays is a key priority
