Government Holds Emergency Talks To Avoid Gaps On Supermarket Shelves

Officials from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) are reported to have discussed potential solutions, including relaxing restrictions on drivers’ working hours and a temporary suspension of overnight delivery curfews, whilst increasing HGV training capacity for local drivers.

NamNews Implications:
  • When the public sense shortages, stock-piling will follow.
  • An emergency temporary stopgap would be to allow more EU drivers into the UK.
  • Hopefully it will not take the government too long to recognise the obvious?
