Sajid Javid – 2021 Comments on Help for Food Sector

The comments made by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 23 July 2021.

Throughout this global pandemic, workers in our food and drink sectors have overcome enormous challenges and done everything they can to keep our shelves stocked and our fridges full.

As we manage this virus and do everything we can to break chains of transmission, daily contact testing of workers in this vital sector will help to minimise the disruption caused by rising cases in the coming weeks, while ensuring workers are not put at risk.
