Motion text

That this House welcomes the unveiling of the sculpture, Steel Man, at the site of the former Ravenscraig steel works in Lanarkshire; pays tribute to the former steelworkers and trade unionists who raised funds and commissioned this significant work of remembrance; congratulates the sculptor Andy Scott for creating a fitting tribute to employees at the plant and beyond who left for work to make steel one day but did not come home; remembers the significance of the Ravenscraig works to Lanarkshire and the wider steel industry, which employed 15,000 workers at its peak and occupied twice the land area of Monaco; and further welcomes the continued importance of the steel industry to the area, which is built on the skills and hard work of our modern day steel men and women.
