In 1938 there were 21 British Consulates, including both career and non-career posts, open in the United States, of which two, Tampa and Portland, Oregon, were opened during that year. The number is now 31. During the past six years the following five posts have been opened in the Middle Western States, of which three are career posts, namely Kansas City, Minneapolis and Cincinnati, and two are non-career posts, namely Cleveland and Denver.
