Further to the Written Answer by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Marine, Landscape and Rural Affairs, Mr Jonathan Shaw, on 30 April (Official Report, Commons, 455W), whether the average expenditure by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of £100,000 per annum on research and development into biogas production is a contribution to a budget or whether it involves officials of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs working on the project.
