Steel crisis: Cameron holds emergency talks

London – British Prime Minister David Cameron will hold an emergency meeting to tackle the crisis hitting the country’s steel industry on Thursday after India’s Tata Steel said it would pull out, putting thousands of jobs at risk.

The government is facing criticism over its response to the news, with opposition lawmakers saying it was “asleep at the wheel” when Tata, the country’s biggest producer, decided to sell its loss-making British operations late on Tuesday.
