MP calls for retention of duty differential for sustainable biofuels

Peter Aldous calls on the Secretary of State for Transport to maintain the duty differential for sustainable biofuels which has played an important role in creating green jobs.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): Will the Minister consider maintaining the duty differential for sustainable biofuels? This has played an important role in creating green jobs, which are now threatened by the removal of the differential in April 2012.

Mr Hammond: As my hon. Friend knows, the differential plays an important role in bringing forward sustainable biofuels. In particular, the re-use of used oils is an important source of sustainable fuels. However, all matters relating to duty are for my right hon. Friend the Chancellor to consider and, when the current arrangements expire in 2012, he will consider whether to renew them and on what basis.
