LONDON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Britain has a highly resilient
food supply chain, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson
said on Monday, after a jump in gas prices shut fertiliser
plants that also produce carbon dioxide used in the food
Asked whether there was a risk of Christmas food supplies

that we have a highly resilient supply chain and that will
remain the case."
"We will consider any contingency plans as appropriate."
