Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to step in and save the Coryton refinery in Essex, an important national infrastructure asset; notes that the facility is profitable, one of the most environmentally friendly oil refineries in Europe and worth in excess of 50 million per annum to the local economy; further notes that closure of this facility will have a devastating impact on the people of Essex and risks the country being further dependent on foreign fuel imports; and concludes that financial support in the short-term would be a prudent decision that would make a return for the taxpayer and support Britain's long-term goal of energy security.
