Total US imports of steel from the UK in 2017 were 351 thousand tonnes with a value of £360m. This represents 5% of UK steel production in 2017, in tonnage. For aluminium, the equivalent figures were nine thousand tonnes with a value of £29m. We are working closely with the steel and aluminium industries to assess the potential impact of these measures.
