Difficulties at ports

The COVID Diary – 278 28th January

Britain’s largest business groups have warned the government that companies are facing “substantial difficulties” at ports in the United Kingdom, with the likelihood that there will be a “significant loss of business” if the situation is allowed to continue.

Following a round table meeting on Thursday evening with government minister Michael Grove, business groups said the government needed to act quickly to overcome “the sizeable obstacles” faced by exporters.
