Hull West and Hessle MP seeks answers for Vivergo Fuel workers

Vivergo Fuel have shut down production at their Saltend plant.

The Government's under pressure to roll out the use of a new biofuel after Vivergo Fuels halted production at their Saltend plant.

150 jobs are at risk after the company says uncertainty over the introduction of the E10 fuel has seen a slump in profits.

Government says the plans are under consideration.

Hull West and Hessle MP, Emma Hardy wants talks to be fast-tracked:

"There have been numerous times they've delayed this and they've promised announcements and they haven't delivered them. This uncertainty is what's creating the problems here. This is where the government need to get their act together and sort this out to protect the jobs and protect the investment in our area."
