star this property answer text <p> </p><p>There is no specific published data on the amount of wheat grown in the UK that is used for bioethanol. However it is possible to provide an estimate. Defra's statistics on ‘The Area of Crops Grown For Bioenergy in England and the UK: 2008 – 2012' published in December 2013 include data reported under the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) on the volume of bioethanol supplied to the UK road transport market with information on the feedstock and the country of origin of the feedstock. By applying appropriate conversion factors, it is possible to derive an estimate of the equivalent tonnage and crop area of wheat grown and used to produce bioethanol. These figures are outlined in the table below.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/289168/nonfood-statsnotice2012-12mar14.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/289168/nonfood-statsnotice2012-12mar14.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>UK wheat areas used to produce bioethanol supplied to the UK road transport market 2008/9 - 2012/13 </strong><strong>Wheat (RTFO Year: 15 April n-1 to 14 April n) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Volume of bioethanol (million litres)</strong><strong>(b) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Tonnage of crop implied ('000 tonnes)</strong><strong>(c) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>wheat yield (t/ha)</strong><strong>(d)(e) </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Area implied (thousand ha) and % of UK total wheat area</strong><strong>(e) </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 1: 15 April 2008 - 14 April 2009</p></td><td><p>0.0</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>8.3</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 2: 15 April 2009 - 14 April 2010</p></td><td><p>0.9</p></td><td><p>3</p></td><td><p>7.9</p></td><td><p>0.3 (0%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 3: 15 April 2010 - 14 April 2011(a)</p></td><td><p>211.9</p></td><td><p>581</p></td><td><p>7.7</p></td><td><p>75.4 (4%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 4: 15 April 2011 - 14 April 2012</p></td><td><p>17.9</p></td><td><p>49</p></td><td><p>7.7</p></td><td><p>6.3 (0%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Year 5: 15 April 2012 - 14 April 2013 (provisional)(f)</p></td><td><p>48.2</p></td><td><p>132</p></td><td><p>6.7</p></td><td><p>19.6 (1%)</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>(a) This includes an estimated 92 million tonnes of bioethanol produced from wheat used for markets other than for UK Road Transport.</p><p> </p><p>(b) All wheat volumes above were grown on previously cropped land.</p><p> </p><p>(c) Conversion: 365 litres bioethanol = 1 tonne wheat grain (at 15% moisture).

star this property answer text <p>As promised in our manifesto, we have committed to planting 11 million trees during this Parliament, which we plan to do primarily through the Rural Development Programme’s Countryside Stewardship scheme. This scheme aims to invest £18 million in new woodland planting each year. A number of other initiatives are also in place, including the Woodland Carbon Code, to attract other funding to ensure that planting rates are maintained at the average level over the previous Programme of 2,600 hectares per year. This will, according to the most recent greenhouse gas inventory projections, increase the amount of carbon removed by England’s woodlands from 5.0 million tonnes carbon dioxide in 2014 to 5.9 million tonnes in 2020.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We also remain strongly supportive of sector-led initiatives, such as Grown in Britain and the Roots to Prosperity strategy, in their work to develop and strengthen the woodland economy and thereby attract further private investment to help increase woodland creation capacity.</p><p> </p>
