Issues the CEO of Heathrow currently deals with (from last Friday's guardian):
He said Heathrow was stockpiling for its own operations and those of its suppliers: “The obvious thing you might think of is our baggage system, which has a Dutch supplier, so do we have the spare parts?“But some of the other things that are more urgent are the rubber gloves that security officers wear when they are searching somebody. They come from the EU and if you don’t have them, you can’t search people.“The fabric swabs that we use for detection also come from the EU, and there isn’t a UK supplier, so we need to make sure we’ve got a good stockpile of those. We’ve been working on that for some time.”
