Renewable Transport Fuel Obligations

Volume 489: debated on Friday 13 March 2009

My Noble Friend the Minister of State Department for Transport has made the following ministerial statement.

Further to my statement of 28 January 2009 about the outcome of the recent consultation on the draft Renewable Transport Fuel Obligations (Amendment) Order 2009, I have today published the Government’s response to the second part of the consultation. Part two sought views on longer term issues concerning the future transposition of the renewable energy directive and the fuel quality directive. It is intended that a further consultation will be held later this year in order to seek views on detailed proposals for implementation of these directives.

Copies of the Government’s response to part two of the consultation have been placed in the Library of the House and are available in the Vote Office and the Printed Paper Office.
