HC Deb 22 March 1910 vol 15 cc940-1

asked what was the number of tons of tin-plates produced in this country and the United States of America respectively for the years 1891 and 1908


The only official statistics available of the production of tin-plates in this country are those compiled in connection with the Census of Production, which show that in 1907 the quantity of tinned and terne plates and sheets produced was 529,000 tons. No corresponding figures can be given for 1891 or 1908. As regards the United States of America I have no available figures for 1891. In 1908 the quantity produced was 537,000 tons.
