Welsh government defends ban on non-essential item sale during ‘firebreak’ lockdown – video

The Welsh health minister, Vaughan Gething, defended the rule banning the sale of a list of not-essential items during a two-week ‘firebreak’ lockdown which started on Friday.

Gething’s comments at a press briefing on Monday follow an incident where there seemed to be confusion in one store over the status of period products.

In a later-deleted tweet, the Tesco Twitter account suggested to a customer – who claimed they had been told they couldn’t buy the items at a store – that this was in line with the guidelines.

The Welsh government has tweeted a clarification on its firebreak guidance on the sale of non-essential items in supermarkets
