§ 17. Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Minister for Trade how many tonnes of steel have been imported during each of the past three years; and what is the estimated amount for the current year.
§ Mr. Sproat
The figures in millions of metric tonnes are as follows:
Million metric tonnes 1979 3.8 1980 4.6 1981 3.6 1982* 3.0 * January-September.
I prefer not to offer an estimate for 1982 as a whole.
