I am delighted that the UK will be receiving nearly 3 million packets of paracetamol from India. This is a fantastic example of the importance of international trade and the strong relationship we have with India.
This is a global fight and it essential we work together to overcome Covid19. Officials in both the UK and India have worked hard to secure this deal and I would like to show my appreciation for the work they have done.
Panic buying has begun to calm down now, and I hope the announcement of these vital supplies for supermarkets will continue to help stem people's concerns. People across the whole of the UK have been working round the clock to ensure there are enough supplies for everyone. I would urge people to be considerate when shopping so ensure everyone, including emergency workers and vulnerable people, can also get the things they need.
