Dave Nellist of the Socialist Party and the National Chair of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) has today backed a petition calling for the nationalisation of Tata.

Dave stated that

Most of my family were steelworkers. The sale or closure of the remaining steel works would be a disaster for the areas concerned. The Tories were forced to nationalise Rolls Royce in 1971, and completed the job in just 24 hours. If we had a serious public sector led house-building programme there’d be plenty of need for steel. I support the call to renationalise steel.

The petition has been initiated by the National Shop Stewards Network, and can be signed here
