Redcar Delegate Gets Standing Ovation After Emotional
Steelworks Closure Speech

A very emotional debate was held today at the Labour Conference on the Economic Policy Report.

The closure of the steelworks at Redcar was the theme of Redcar CLP delegate Ceri Cawley's tearfull speech which brought a standing ovation from conference.

She recounted the effects of the closure of the steelworks upon her community and told conference that it had affected her 7 year old son who organised a Christmas party for all the children from some of the families in her part of town whose parents had lost their jobs.
