    Update from Environment, Food and Rural minister George Eustice and Helen Dickinson of the Retail Consortium.

    Panic buying is causing issues and meaning NHS workers are having problems getting supplies at end of long shifts

    Government have spoken to food retailers and been assured there is plenty of food and production has been increased to deal with the demand caused by panic buying and delivery lines.

    Other measures taken: Waived plastic bag charge on online deliveries; recruit more staff; limit shopping hours to improve re-stocking; item limits; lifting curfew hours for delivery.

    They would re-iterate that there is over a billion pounds more food in people’s houses that there was 3 weeks ago.

    Powys NHS Director re-iterated that people should think of NHS workers who are working hard to prepare for the coming weeks.
