Need For Coal To Make Steel And Cement In The UK

EDM number 1596 in 2017-19, proposed by Ronnie Campbell on 10/09/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Coal and Manufacturing industries.

That this House notes that coal is an integral part of the UK manufacturing sector used in the chemical process to make steel and cement; further notes that over the last decade around nine million tonnes per annum of coal has been needed in the UK for non-electricity generation purposes; notes that if coal is not produced in the UK it will be imported from countries including Russia, the US, Colombia and Australia which produce more carbon dioxide through its transportation than coal produced in the UK; and therefore calls on the Government to recognise the production of high quality coal in the UK supports jobs, skills, taxes and investment in the UK and cuts down the carbon dioxide emitted in transporting coal from producers thousands of miles away.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
