John Spellar MP: Tory ministers kicking British industry and workers in the teeth

Vice chairman of Parliament’s Defence Committee and former Defence Minister John Spellar MP has condemned government ministers for using French steel for the new Trident submarines.

The West Midlands MP said: “At the Tory Conference Ministers urge us all to ‘back Britain’, yet time and time again they kick British industry and workers in the teeth. Their behaviour is even more disgraceful after one considers the recent crisis in the steel industry. Ministers and civil servants who refuse to back Britain should hang their heads in shame.”
