Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
David McAllister
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Protecting the steel industry

The Commission President has announced that a long-term strategy will be developed on Europe’s industrial future.

Europe’s steel industry has been under considerable pressure for some time. Unfair economic practices, such as state subsidies and related steel exports at dumping prices, are jeopardising firms and, therefore, jobs; they are also undermining the principles of the international economic system, which should be based on fair competition and free trade.

The European Union must not ignore this and should take effective measures to protect the steel industry.

When does the Commission propose to present its long-term strategy on Europe’s industrial future?

What measures benefiting the steel industry will be included in the strategy?

What further measures does the Commission propose to take to protect the steel industry?
