what is the point of the government not now insisting shops charge for poly bags?

A cashier will not use a "customer bag" today, to bag groceries. They will only use a "clean" store-provided bag. If the bag is "free again", so much the better.
In addition, Plexiglas shields have been placed between the customers and the cashier, to reduce ignorant coughing (either way).
And the grocery store employees got a pay raise. That's when you know the end of the world is happening, when they get a pay raise.
And the weirdest one here today, is you can only enter a public transit bus, using the *back* door. The front door is barricaded. They are also doing this to the light rail trains as well. Front door jammed. Cash fares are no longer accepted. Only the plastic cards work today. This is to keep the bus driver in "his own little slice of Heaven".
Another weird one for you - the public transit buses are "clean on the outside" for once. It must have killed them to do that. They do have an automatic bus washer, but they only process the outside of the bus, once every week or two weeks. Usually the buses are dirty on the outside. And while they claim to be wiping the hand-hold areas of the bus, I really doubt they have enough staff for that. But just cleaning the outside of the bus, is a big change. Hardly anyone is riding the bus. The buses look like a work of art now. You could actually see when your stop is here.

on 22/03/2020, Paul supposed :

Checking the online map of where buses are on their route, there is only one bus on the entire 20 mile route which I would normally use, a 30minute service on a Sunday. There are no buses showing at either terminus at the route ends. So probably around 20% of the normal Sunday service running.

Makes it easier for the shelf looters to grab even more.
