Jobs announcement a blow for steel industry

Commenting as Tata Steel announced hundreds of job losses in Scotland, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"This announcement will come as a body blow to all those affected by these job losses and it is vital that they get the help they need at this difficult time. 

"When the Scottish Government failed to put Scottish steel at the heart of the new Forth Road crossing project, it was clear that the sector was facing real challenges. SNP Ministers need to ensure that every effort is made to secure a viable future for the two plants in Scotland that have been affected."
