New published data on UK Government procurement of steel shows that £158 million was procured by UK Government during 2017/18, of which it is confirmed that 43% (£68 million) was produced in the UK.

Commenting on the publication, UK Steel Director General, Gareth Stace, said:

"The UK steel sector has worked hand in hand with government over the last three years to develop and improve public procurement practices in relation to steel, opening up opportunities for UK steel producers and improving transparency in procurement throughout government. We all know there is still much to progress on, but important and positive steps are being made."
