NSW Liberal Government must commit to supporting steel as a matter of urgency.
With the announcement today that 500 jobs will go from BlueScope Steel, I am demanding the Premier for NSW outline what assistance he is going to provide our region.
We want to know how the Premier is going to help ensure a sustainable steel industry is maintained here in the Illawarra. To date, the Premier has given very non-committal statements but no real solutions.
What is clear, BlueScope Steel needs the Government to provide some assistance. There are hundreds if not thousands of jobs on the line here and the Government needs to act.
Our region is hurtling towards a crisis and the Government is not doing anything to help.
