Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Elliot Morley (Minister of State (Climate Change and Environment), Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; Scunthorpe, Labour)
We need a range of technologies and an energy mix, and such a mix is a feature of the current energy review, which is being led by my hon. Friend the Minister for Energy. However, the fact remains that used cooking oils exist, and processing them into fuel is a very good way of dealing with them. It is desirable to replace a proportion of the fossil fuels in our fuel mix with biofuels; indeed, we should encourage that.
