UK? £154 million?
Its nowt that - £154 million is peanuts.
(Previous) UK guvmint spent (that is gave) UK power generators £630 million to burn trees/wood in power stations. Motivation: UK green credentials were a bit tardy, burning wood is carbon neutral so massages UK carbon emissions (ommissions?) a little.
Consequences: £630 hot millions in UK buy wood campaign sorta puts up the price of wood dinnit? Now you can't buy wood easily in UK as most of it is earmarked for burning in electricity generating power stations.
What remains of UK coal industry has had its order books slashed because big customers are burning wood/trees and not coal. Miners are uneasy again?
Businesses dependent on wood other than for burning it are facing increases in cost of product that makes them noncompetitive in todays market.
Decisions taken in previous guvmint have taken a while to kick in but kick in they did.
Or so I am lead to believe.
