Tata said a stress test of its European arm to assess the impact of a downturn had flagged concerns for the UK unit. However, Tata Steel UK said it expected trading to pick up later this year.


The Department for Business said the government is providing support to protect the steel industry from "unfair trade and energy costs."

In results published last week, Tata said that earnings at Tata Steel Europe - which includes the UK business - fell by more than 60% in the year to March 31. It added it had carried out tests to assess the potential impact of an economic downturn in Europe, given factors such as higher inflation and interest rates.
