So Mark Dripford won’t change his mind about supermarkets closing off to non-essential items?
If a person needs to replace a broken kettle, toaster or microwave in the midst of a 17 day lockdown, he is in effect encouraging them to illegally cross the border in order to get the equipment to make themselves a cup of tea and a piece of toast?
What happens if they have a requirement to extend the lockdown at short notice?
Meanwhile, councils are asking us not to fly-tip but stockpile our larger items of rubbish for the same period whilst recycling centres remain closed….
I can understand the smaller shopkeeper being annoyed he has to close whilst the supermarket can sell the same goods as he does. However, the smaller shopkeeper may receive compensation, whilst the supermarket in all probability may not receive any compensation.

Can you really see customer services personnel refusing a reasonable request for a ‘necessary’ item in an emergency when approached & given an explanation in a reasonable manner? They are human after all.
Someone who demands something unnecessary in an aggressive manner should quite rightly be refused.
What is wrong with hanging on to rubbish for what is in fact an extra week as we only have fortnightly collections anyway?
Why choose these 2 weeks to get rid of excess rubbish inless you are just being bloody minded?
It sparked a brief war of words between Tesco and the Welsh Government as the shop blamed the authority – while it claimed they were wrong. Katie had said: ‘Can you explain why I was told today that I can’t buy period pads as I’m sure they are essential to women?!!! But I can buy alcohol it doesn’t make sense.’ Then, in a now-deleted post Tesco responded: ‘We understand how frustrating these changed will be for our Welsh customers. ‘However, we have been told by the Welsh Government not to sell these items for the duration of the firebreak lockdown.’ It apologised this morning and said the wrong reply had been sent out.
