Harriett Baldwin calls on Government to help increase capacity for supermarket home delivery


17th March 2020

Following the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s statement to the House of Commons, Harriett Baldwin welcomes emergency support for the hospitality sector and asks about increasing capacity for supermarket home delivery.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

I thank the Chancellor and his team for all that has been announced today. I know that those in the retail hospitality sector in my constituency will be very pleased to hear about it.

There is a sector of the retail market that is doing incredibly well, and that is the supermarkets. Many of my constituents are worried because they rely on home deliveries from supermarkets. Can the Chancellor update ​us on what talks he and his colleagues are having with the supermarket industry about increasing capacity for home delivery?

Rishi Sunak

That is an excellent point. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is engaged in urgent talks with supermarkets to ensure the security of our food supply and to improve accessibility, particularly for those who may now be at home.
