Written statement to Parliament

Correction to the written answer to Parliamentary Question 5072

Explains that a battery technology competition was launched on 24 June 2010 by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

The Rt Hon Norman Baker

I regret to inform the house that there was an inaccuracy in the answer I gave to Parliamentary Question 5072 on 5 July 2010, Official Report, Col 9W, about the research that had been undertaken on battery technology. The £3 million competition that was launched on the 24 June 2010 and to which I referred to in my answer, was in fact launched by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. It was not launched by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills itself.
