Officials at the Department for Transport (DfT) are said to be holding talks with industry chiefs over a sgortage of 100,000 truck drivers due to Brexit and the Covid pandemic.
One measure could be bringing in short-term visas, the Telegraph has reported.
A source said: “Everyone involved is sworn to secrecy as the Home Office is taking a very hard line.
“The Home Office has the final decision on this and the DfT knows it has a very tough sell, so need the very best evidence.”
