Government asks stores to stockpile food to overcome hauliers strike

Isabel Oakeshott, Deputy Political Editor The Sunday Times July 6, 2008

Ministers are in talks with supermarkets about emergency food reserves in case fuel protests lead to shortages at shops.
The government wants to ensure retailers and suppliers can continue to sell basics such as meat, bread and milk if hauliers bring the country to a halt.
They have asked supermarkets to make contingency plans “in case the infrastructure of the country breaks down”.
