We need a proper plan to address supply chain chaos and driver shortages – Ed Miliband

Ed Miliband MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on further news of supply chain chaos and driver shortages, said:

“Government ministers can pretend that there aren’t real issues in our supply chain, but it won’t wash. They need a proper plan which addresses the problems, particularly in the HGV sector. Burying their heads in the sand has gone on long enough. It’s time they got a grip.

“This disruption was foreseeable, and it won’t disappear without action. Rather than blaming business, government should work with them to address the gaps sector by sector. It’s what any responsible government would do and it is essential to protect the recovery.”
