‘Buy Christmas dinner now and freeze it’ shoppers told, amid warning it’s too late
The Independent says UK shoppers have been advised to buy Christmas dinner in advance and put it in the freezer if they want to avoid disappointment, as experts warned that Boris Johnson’s plan to bring an end to supply chain chaos had little hope of working.
In response to growing pressure, the government softened its hard line on immigration last weekend, announcing plans to allow 5,500 poultry workers and 5,000 lorry drivers to enter the UK on three-month work visas which are due to expire on 24 December.
The government hopes that the army of workers brought in from overseas will “save Christmas” but food and haulage industry leaders were quick to pour cold water on the plans.
