Raab told MPs that industry, rather than Whitehall, would oversee the stockpiling of food in case negotiations fail, after refusing to confirm just that two days ago, the Independentreports.

It would be wrong to describe it as the government doing the stockpiling. And, of course, the idea that we only get food imports into this country from one continent is not appropriate.
