(16.01.2019)

In today's PMQ's the Rt Hon Robert Goodwill, MP for Scarborough and Whitby, brought up the subject of Sirius Minerals and that it was currently seeking a Treasury guarantee to secure its financing. Prime Minister Theresa May agreed that this is exactly the sort of project the “Northern Powerhouse” strategy needs by driving investment and exports. She would not be drawn on current financing discussions given their commercially sensitive nature. <br><br>It is encouraging to see, that even with the ongoing political turmoil, the Sirius Minerals project getting well deserved attention from politicians. With procurement now complete for all the major construction projects to support stage 2 financing, the banks are now expected to come together to sign commitments letter, with the Government’s approval to follow. <br><br> Click the image below to watch the video.
