Question Time is back on our television screens tonight with five guest panelists ready to tackle the day’s most pressing issues.
Host Fiona Bruce will present the Aldershot show in Hampshire after the Conservative Party conference and amid the ongoing fuel and supply chain crisis.
This week, Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi, Shadow Secretary of State Lisa Nandy, radio host Nick Ferrari, comedian Rosie Jones and NFU President Minette Batters will form the panel.
Earlier in the day, fuel traders claimed that the “improper prioritization” of deliveries was responsible for the ongoing bottlenecks in London and the South East.
Brian Madderson, chairman of the Petrol Retailers Association (PRA), said only 71% of gas stations in the region have both gasoline and diesel, compared to 90% in the rest of the UK.
He warned that fuel shipments were going to “the wrong parts of the country”.
Mr Madderson alleged that independent retailers were being denied access to information from talks between the government, transport companies and oil companies.
Meanwhile, supply chain problems continue to haunt the country with reports that supermarkets face shortages of pasta, turkeys and even chocolate before Christmas.
Question Time on BBC1 starts at 10:35 p.m. You can follow the live coverage of the program below.
