Bosses and trade unions on the British Steel works seek parity over business rate cuts
BOSSES and trade unions on the British Steel works in Scunthorpe are seeking parity with the Port Talbot site in Wales over cuts in business rates.
From next April the Port Talbot works owned by the Indian company Tata Steel will see its bill cut by £1.7 million a year.
The move follows the decision by the Welsh Assembly to pass on cuts to business rates immediately.
Whereas the similar-sized Scunthorpe site will receive an estimated cut of £360,641 next year and will have to wait for the full reduction to be phased in over four years.
