Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has received on promoting biomass in his energy review. (76153)

The Energy Review Team is analysing the 5,300 consultation responses—a number of which included reference to biomass—and has met representatives of the biomass industry.

Biomass has been reviewed by the independent Biomass Task Force and the Carbon Trust, both of whom published their reports in October 2005. The Government published their response to the Biomass Task Force in April 2006.

The Energy Review will report in the summer.
