Q.1 Could you please let us know if you have any updates on empty runnings? A. Tom Smith stated on the call, No, the only update we have is the one we have previously put out in the public domain, i.e. On the 29th January 2020 we were asked on this call "What proportion of lorries across the short straights are travelling GB-EU empty? ITV were reporting 65% empty at Dunkirk and Calais last week, which was much higher than the 30% mentioned at PAC?" We answered : "BPDG's BOC are looking into this as it is a cause of concern however we believe the figure is actually down to 50% empties."

Tom Smith stated on the call no nothing new to what we have already stated to date- engagement between Defra and local authorities continues.
