The Department for Transport has, pursuant to Article 14(2) of Regulation (EC) No 561/2006, agreed to a temporary and limited relaxation of the enforcement of EU drivers hours and working-time rules, for the drivers of vehicles transporting liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) undertaking trunk deliveries in England, Scotland and Wales, due to the shortage of LPG at strategically important refineries in England and Wales.

The department wishes to emphasise that, as a general rule, we expect business to plan for and manage the risks of disruption to supply chains.
