To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change if he will meet representatives from the oil-fired heating industry to discuss the inclusion of bioliquids in the renewable heat incentive.

As stated in the renewable heat incentive policy document (published in March), we are considering whether to support bioliquids as part of developing the second phase of the scheme.

I have asked my officials to engage with Oftec (Oil Firing Technical Association) who represent members of the oil-fired heating industry. They have provided useful evidence which we are considering. I therefore do not propose to meet members of the oil-fired heating industry at this time.
