UK Govt Block on PPE For Scotland – Scandal Grows

Despite attempts to play dawn the assertion that English based manufacturers of PPE were told not to supply care homes in Scotland and Wales the scandal grew.

When we ran the story yesterday there were suggestions that it was false news and unhelpful. We highlighted one specific provider who (give them their due) seemed embarrassed that they could not supply customers in Scotland they had traditionally supplied.

Today THE NATIONAL has further news on the iten and specifically lists another three medical suppliers.

We also include a link to a report on Radio Clyde (BBC) when their investigative team broke this news story. They said hey had identified four suppliers instructed not to fulfill Scottish PPE orders.:
