David Cameron has agreed to meet Selby's MP about the future of Eggborough Power Station.
A thousand jobs are at risk at the plant after it missed out a government grant in December to convert from burning coal to wood-burning for electricity.
At Prime Minister's Question Time, Selby & Ainsty MP Nigel Adams asked David Cameron:
"The Prime Minister will be as encouraged as I am that unemployment in my constituency is down by almost a third since the last election. However, the future for almost 1,000 workers related to Eggborough power station in my constituency is less certain. Will he meet me to ensure that we have a future for this very important asset in my constituency?"
