The imports into the United Kingdom of iron and steel and manufactures thereof, registered during the first six months of 1923 and 1924, amounted to 665,237 and 1,171,621 tons respectively. It is not possible to state the precise quantities of steel goods included in these totals, but they may be estimated at about 430,000 tons in the first six months of 1923 and 760,000 tons in the first six months of 1924. I ought to add that the figures include imports from His Majesty's Dominions and India.
