Should there be a concern, he told the BBC that the government could bring in the army to help bring in fuel, if it would help.
He went on to say that Brexit was not the reason behind UK’s shortage of lorry drivers.
Shapps added: “Not only are there very large and even larger shortages in other EU countries like Poland and Germany, which clearly can’t be to do with Brexit, but actually because of Brexit I’ve been able to change the law and alter the way our driving tests operate in a way I could not have done if we were still part of the EU.”
A Government spokesperson has said that there was no shortage of fuel but a “very resilient and robust supply chain”.
“People should continue to shop for fuel as usual,” they continued to The Mirror.
