Politicians react to threat to giant Yorkshire mine
Politicans have been giving their views after the news that Sirius Minerals, the company behind a huge potash mine in North Yorkshire, ran into funding difficulties.
Sirius blamed "market conditions" and also lack of support from the government after cancelling plans to issue a bond.
The prime minister's official spokesman said: "When examining any request for financing, we have to assess the potential of a project against the need to protect taxpayers' money."
The MP for Redcar, Labour's Anna Turley, said it was "devastating news" and added on Twitter: "That the government are refusing to step in and secure this enormous project is an absolute disgrace."
Middlesbrough's MP, Labour's Andy McDonald, tweeted: "Sirius is critical to Teesside's future and if government stands aside as they did with the Redcar Blast Furnace they will never be forgiven."
Robert Goodwill, the Conservative MP for Scarborough and Whitby, said it would be "unprecedented" for the government to step in. "The government looked at it and said it wasn't the sort of thing it could do, it is a commercial project and if it is a viable project then other companies will back it."
More on Sirius Minerals which has pulled a bond offering intended to fund development of a fertiliser mine in North Yorkshire - an announcement that has caused its shares to drop more than 50%.
Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said: “This
is terrible news for a very large number of retail investors who had put their
faith in the company. Many of these shareholders live close to the mine and
invested as a show of support in a project that had the potential to greatly
improve the local economy.

Knife amnesty bins put in Yorkshire police stations
Knife bins are being put in police stations across our area this week.
The bins are part of Operation Sceptre, a week-long national campaign against knife crime.
North Yorkshire Police say they allow people to hand over weapons "safely and anonymously".
Det Supt Fran Naughton said: "Operation Sceptre provides an important opportunity to continue the conversation about knife crime, helping children and young people understand the dangers and potentially fatal consequences of carrying a knife, whilst providing support for them and their families.”
Lack of government help 'a disgrace'
The MP for Redcar, Labour's Anna Turley, said details of Sirius Minerals having to cancel plans to issue a $500m (£403m) bond was "devastating news".
She added on Twitter: "That the government are refusing to step in and secure this enormous project is an absolute disgrace.
"This government owes everyone involved an apology. It's not too late to change their minds and step in to save this huge project and the jobs and livelihoods that rely on it."
Graham Spooner, investment research analyst at The Share Centre, said the news meant that "investors will be fearing for the future of the mine and remain cognisant that the recent history of mining in the UK has been littered with failures".
MP hits out at 'mad' government over Sirius Minerals woe
He said: "This government has completely taken its eye off the ball and, like the podium in Luxembourg, Boris Johnson and his hard right pals have gone missing at a time of crisis.
"This mad administration, propelling the country to economic cliff edge, seems determined to do everything they can to destroy the industrial base of Teesside. They’re keen enough to give tax breaks to gambling bankers but won’t lift a finger to help our industries.
"Sirius is critical to Teesside’s future and if government stands aside as they did with the Redcar Blast Furnace they will never be forgiven.”

"Due to the ongoing poor bond market conditions for an issuer like Sirius we have not been able to deliver our stage 2 financing plan. As a result, we have taken the decision to reduce the rate of development across the project in order to preserve funding to allow more time to develop alternatives and preserve the significant amount of inherent value in this world-class project.
"The company will now conduct a comprehensive strategic review over the next six months to assess and incorporate optimisations to the project development plan and to develop a different financing structure for the funds required.
"This is the most prudent decision to give the company the time necessary to restructure its plans to move the project forward.
"The process will incorporate feedback from prospective credit providers around the risks associated with construction and will include seeking a major strategic partner for the project."
'Ongoing uncertainty' blamed for potash mine setback
Back to Sirius Minerals.
In August the mine announced that its plans to raise £410m, to help fund a potash mine in North Yorkshire, was halted due to "market conditions"
It has now said that "as result of global market conditions, the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the political environment in the United Kingdom" the company and its advisors believe that the debt offering is "now unlikely to be achievable."
"The company has therefore today announced that the scope of construction activities on the project will now be adjusted while the company undertakes a strategic review of its options," it said.
"The board considers that a reduced pace of development focused on key areas of the project that will ultimately serve to preserve the most value for the project will provide the company with a period of up to six months to review all available options for the company to move forward.
"The group will need to secure additional external financing in order to allow it to continue operations after 31 March 2020."
