As my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State made clear in the Written Ministerial Statement of 18 June 2015, Official Report, Column HCWS42, this Government is committed to ending new subsidies for onshore wind. We are currently considering how we use the tools available under the CFD to implement this manifesto commitment and will set out how to do so, in due course.
