Example text

Most of the metals are dense and heavy and take little space - aluminium being an exception. Charges for putting metal into warehouses were virtually eliminated as merchants forced the warehousemen to compete. These warehousing 'games' tended to die out in the early/mid-1980s as demand grew and warehouse stocks declined. Then in the early 1990s, following the collapse of the FSU there was a huge increase in exports of metal to the West, particularly aluminium, but also zinc, nickel and lead. There followed a vigorous expansion and commercial exploitation of LME warehousing facilities on an unprecedented scale.

Although Malaysian mine , or rather alluvial, production is now a mere ghost of what it was , neighbouring Indonesia , with the famous locations of Banka and Billiton, is still a major producer, as is Thailand. The LME's original policy regarding overseas warehouse locations was that they should be focused on areas of significant net consumption of those metals approved for delivery. Singapore did not fit the criteria in respect of tin then; and, despite local increases in tin consumption, probably still does not.

The Ministry of Supply had by now been renamed the Ministry of Materials and, as each metal was freed, it terminated its contract arrangements with Dominion and other suppliers and abandoned the tedious licensing arrangements that had so restricted and hampered industrial usage. Price controls, licensing of metal usage, export controls (apart from some forms of scrap) and state trading with all its bureaucratic inflexibility and burdensome regulation were at an end. The markets and industry both in the UK and in Europe began to breathe more easily.
