Commenting on new funding plans from Sirius Minerals for its Woodsmith Mine project, Labour and Co-operative candidate for Redcar, Anna Turley, said:

“I am pleased Sirius Minerals have been able to devise an alternative funding approach which should allow this brilliant project to progress. However, they should not be in this position. Government should be backing this project to rebalance the economy and bring decent, skilled jobs to our region. As a result of this failure, the project has had to be scaled back, 300 jobs have been lost, and this new approach now delays the Teesside section of the project for up to 2 years. The Sirius project is a huge vote of confidence in our region and everything possible must be done to unlock its huge potential.”
