UK to slow expansion of biofuels

Date : 7th July 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The UK is to slow its adoption of biofuels amid fears they raise food prices and harm the environment, the transport secretary has said. Ruth Kelly said biofuels had potential to cut carbon emissions but there were "increasing questions" about them. "Uncontrolled" growing of fuel crops could destroy rainforest, she told MPs. A government-commissioned report recommends ministers "amend not abandon" biofuel policies. The Tories said policy had to change "right now".
