Liquid Gas UK Chief Executive George Webb meets with the Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng and supports the industry statement below.

“While there has always been plenty of fuel at our refineries and terminals, we are also now seeing signs that the situation at the pumps has begun to improve.

“Today we met with the Business Secretary and continue to work closely with the government to maintain regular deliveries of fuel to stations, supported by the welcome deployment of the Reserve Tanker Fleet today.

“We remain confident that the situation will stabilise further in the coming days and encourage everyone to fill up as they normally would to help forecourts return to normal.”
