OK - I'd assumed that all the strips were X9 allocations.

That didn't work but extending the idea, by adding the following
section, below the existing United Kingdom line, has done the trick.

United Kingdom/X1/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X2/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X3/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X4/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X5/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X6/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X7/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X8/4/G/Control/50
United Kingdom/X9/4/G/Control/50

They now show up in the UK panel.

Many thanks.
