London. The British government is reportedly considering appointing an army to provide petrol stations to alleviate supply disruptions caused by a shortage of truck drivers.
For some British gas stations, councils are formed on Monday for the fourth day.
Brian Maderson, president of the British Retail Petrol Dealers Association, said the military was training its employees to drive tankers.
However, the government said it “did not plan to stop the army at this time.”
The British freight industry says there are no 100,000 truck drivers in the UK. It was caused by an epidemic, the exodus of foreign workers after the aging working class and the United Kingdom left the European Union.
The British government has announced that 5,000 three-month visas will be issued to truck drivers from October. However, British industry does not consider this an adequate solution.
Ruby McGregor-Smith, president of the British Confederation of Industry, said the government’s announcement was “like pouring a little water on the fire.”
European truck drivers do not believe that many drivers want to come to the UK for such a short time.
The British government says it has caused panic problems in the supply of petrol Shopping in store.
“The only reason we don’t have gas at gas stations is because people buy unwanted gas,” said Environment Minister George Eustis. The minister added that the government did not plan to “send troops to carry out transport at this time”.
“However, we always have an accidental civilian incident unit in the military,” he said.
