HC Deb 23 March 2004 vol 419 c729W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will make a statement on(a) recent trends in investment in renewable energy and (b) the effect of those trends upon residents in Buckingham. [161568]

Mr. Timms

Recent trends in renewable energy investment have been highly encouraging. More new capacity has been constructed in the last few years than in the previous decade, and a significant amount is currently in the pipeline. This covers a wide range of technologies including onshore and offshore wind, solar and biomass.

I am not aware of any proposals for new development in Buckingham arising from these trends.
