I have been asked to reply.

The Government expect that transport fuel suppliers will use a mixture of imported and domestically produced biofuels to comply with the requirements of the renewable transport fuel obligation (RTFO). We do not, however, have precise estimates of the likely split between imports and domestic production in any given year. The Renewable Fuels Agency will be reporting regularly on these matters.
