Kwasi Kwarteng – 2021 Comments on CO2 Supply

The comments made by Kwasi Kwarteng, the Business Secretary, on 11 October 2021.

Today’s agreement means that critical industries can have confidence in their supplies of CO2 over the coming months without further taxpayer support.

The government acted quickly to provide CF Fertilisers with the support it needed to kick-start production, and give us enough breathing space to agree a longer-term, more sustainable solution.

I would like to thank all the parties involved in this agreement who have recognised the importance of avoiding supply disruptions and delivering for UK businesses and consumers.
