Supermarkets selling ban to be reviewed says First Minister
The ban on supermarkets selling non-essential items during Wales' lockdown will be reviewed after the weekend, First Minister Mark Drakeford has said.
The BBC is reporting this morning that pressure has mounted on the Welsh Government to reverse the decision to prohibit supermarkets from selling items such as clothes and microwaves.
The largest petition ever submitted to the Senedd has now passed 45,000 signatures.
Mr Drakeford said the Welsh Government was ensuring "common sense is applied"
Supermarkets have been told they can only sell "essential" items and must close parts of their stores which sell products such as clothes, shoes, toys and bedding during Wales' 17-day "firebreak lockdown".
