Christmas in danger of being cancelled as labour and stock shortages bite

Staff shortages, particularly in the road haulage industry, and increased bureaucracy following Britain's exit from the European Union are in danger of causing "a second crap Christmas" There might be no need for the Grinch to steal Christmas this year as it looks like the event might be cancelled (fat chance) owing to shortages. The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has reported stock levels as a percentage of expected sales declined to their lowest level in August since the lobbying group began tracking retail industry trends in 1983. The CBI said the pandemic has played its part in disrupting the global supply chain, as has Brexit. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) corroborated this view, noting that a shortage of lorry drivers is causing stock shortages across the construction and hospitality industries.
