In Northern Ireland there are problems with food supplies. The reason is that imports from the United Kingdom have been delayed by Brexit. That, among other things, creates empty shelves in the supermarkets. That’s what the Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney says.
“The shelves in the supermarkets were full for Christmas and now there are some problems with logistics. This is clearly a result of the Brexit”, says Coveney in an ITV interview.
There are now several controls on goods going from the United Kingdom to Northern Ireland which cause disturbances, the minister states.
British ministers have just said in recent days that the disruption caused by the Brexit in Northern Ireland is not so bad.
