The Faraday battery challenge is a key part of the industrial strategy, which my right hon. Friend Greg Clark had a key role in implementing. It has made extraordinary progress in the past two or three years. I would be very happy to pick this issue up with my hon. Friend. Over the next 10 years, I think we will see a complete transformation in the battery technology he talks about.
