To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether the £25 million Government contribution announced in the National Infrastructure Plan to support innovation in manufacturing of ultra-low emission vehicles in the UK between 2017-18 and 2019-20 (a) forms part of the previously announced £500 million investment in ultra-low emission vehicles for 2015-20 or (b) is additional spending.

I can confirm that the National Infrastructure Plan announcement is for £25 million of new spending on innovation in ULEV manufacturing – it is in addition to the £500 million previously announced.

The Government has previously committed to provide £100 million for ULEV manufacturing innovation between 2015-20 – and so the new spending represents a 25 per cent increase.
