To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what assessment his Department has made of the capacity for domestic wood feedstock to meet the demands of biomass generation in addition to those of UK wood processing industries; from which locations his Department expects any further supply to be sourced; what assessment his Department has made of the effect on UK wood processing industries of biomass demands for domestic wood feedstocks; and if he will make a statement.

The Department is leading a cross-Government UK Bioenergy Strategy considering these issues which we expect to publish in March. We are discussing our assessments closely with representatives of the wood processing and other industries to ensure we have the fullest possible evidence base.
