Peter,

Try Majestic Engineering in Bootle, they probably don't carry anything that light in stock, but he'll be able to get & cut it for you I'm sure. If not, Mersey Metals are worth a try, they're on the posh side of the river - if they do them, I'd be happy to pick them up & bring them round to you.

HTH!
Cheers!
Ade.

M-machine do an 8mm x 1mm wall and I've always found them good. If you are liekly to need more then it will be better to buy full lengths than cut bits.
