Sunak says there will be “a good amount of Christmas presents”, despite supply chain issues

Speaking at the G7 meetings in Washington, Rishi Sunak attempted to reassure those who have expressed concerns over supply chain issues in the run-up to Christmas.

A shortage of lorry drivers and a logjam of shipping containers have led to widespread concerns of shortages.

“We’re doing absolutely everything we can to mitigate some of these challenges. They are global in nature, so we can’t fix every single problem, but I feel confident there will be good provision of goods for everybody. I’m confident there will be a good amount of Christmas presents available for everyone to buy,” said Sunak on Thursday.

“Today we have collectively agreed to work closely over the coming months – and together we will build a strong and resilient recovery,” he added.
