British Steel Corporation (BSC) and predecessor bodies
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Iron and Steel Act of 1967 brought the 14 largest steel companies, representing about 90 per cent of the UK's steelmaking capacity, into public ownership as the British Steel Corporation. In 1988, after a period of profound rationalisation, the British Steel Corporation was privatised to become British Steel plc.
