I assume that the clue is in the title, “Transport”. Earlier, I asked the hon. Member for Bristol West whether the duty applied exclusively to transport fuels. I opened a project on 14 October, the North Leeds power station, which exclusively uses recycled cooking oil. Does the duty apply to that fuel? It drives diesel turbines—they do not go anywhere, but they are engines. Is the fuel classed in the same way as transport fuel?
