Dalzell and Clydebridge Steelworks Saved

24th March 2016

I am pleased to announce that Energy Minister Fergus Ewing has secured a deal with Liberty House to buy and operate the Dalzell and Clydebridge steelworks in Lanarkshire.

This will ensure that the area benefits from several well paid jobs and that an iconic Scottish and Lanarkshire industry has a secure future in Scotland.

The Scottish Steel Task Force, set up by the Scottish Government, has worked tirelessly over the last few months to find a buyer. The SNP is committed to strengthening our manufacturing sector and providing jobs across the country.
