Transport and Logistics: Labour Shortages
Published date : 16 December, 2021
10. What recent discussions he has had with the Home Secretary on tackling labour shortages in the transport and logistics sectors.
The Government may have taken decisive action in their own eyes, but it does not seem to be having the desired effect, because the temporary visas issued by the Government in the latter part of this year have failed to attract even 10% of the open visa spaces. Given that the rest of Europe also has an HGV driver shortage, will the Secretary of State accept that the UK Government need to make our visa package for HGV drivers more attractive to EU drivers in order to help quell the domestic driver shortage?
