Carbon Emissions: Agriculture

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what policies his Department has in place to achieve carbon dioxide emissions reductions in the agricultural sector. (255169)

I have been asked to reply.

The Government are currently developing a policy framework to reduce all greenhouse gases (GHG) including carbon dioxide from the agriculture, forestry and land management sectors.

This work will feed into the Government’s response to recommendations made in the Committee on Climate Change’s inaugural report.
