REQUEST FOR EVIDENCE - EFRA SELECT COMMITTEE INQUIRY - COVID-19 AND FOOD SUPPLY

The EFRA Select Committee has asked us if we would like to provide additional information and evidence in light of the new lockdown.

The Committee is urgently following up on its report, published in July, and the Government response, to examine whether the necessary lessons have been learned and implemented, and whether further action is required. As part of this scrutiny, we are invited to submit written evidence on:

1. How the pandemic and the Government’s response to it have affected food supply since July 2020;

2. What impact the current lockdown is having on food supply; and

3. What further actions the Government, public bodies and industry need to take.
