TIN PLATE TRADE WAR PROBLEMS. SHELL-DISCARD STEEL AS blATERIAL. i SATISFACTORY ARRANGE- MENT ARRIVED AT. i A meeting of the Tinplate Association has been convened to take (place at, Swansea on Tuesday r-egaxding prices, but tihis has been adjourned for the time being. It is stated that- the War Supplies De- partmont had intimated to certain firms in the trade with respect to price that could buy at 25s. 6d. and asking if they could supply at this figure. The ruling rate generally was from 26s. 6d. to 27s.. hut it is a matter of common know- ledge that there was actually no fixed ;Rt" ind that while one maker was charging one price this varied in particular works. With a, view cf discussing the matter the meeting referred to had been convened, the object being, it is believed, to endeavour to come to a definite under- standing. Regarding the steel bar supplies a deputa- tion recently went to London to urge the necessity of maintaining the supplies--which had several times been reduced-and the necessity for more even distribution. While nothing official has yet been allowed to transpire respecting the result we under- stand that an arrangement has now been arrived at which will ensure a supply of some 45 per cent. of bars—some works now have 35 and others 60 per cent.—to be evenly distributed over the trade. This will come as welcome news to tinplate manufacturers. Experiments have recently been made in utilising shell discard steel for tjnpktes, and quantities have already been rolled for the purpose. Previously steel discards wco sent to the Midlands for a variety of pur- poses. It is understod that the result of experi- ments show the steel is satisfactory for cer- tain classes.
