Another policy PM Chris Hipkins scrapped on Wednesday took out the government's planned biofuel mandate. 

They planned to make a portion of all fuel used in the Aotearoa plant based through the mandate, but decided to get rid of the policy upon the government's current focus on the cost of living. 

However, both motor trade groups and environmental groups are celebrating the policy being axed - one for the lower cost of fuel and the other for how it’ll actually improve Aotearoa's environment to not use biofuels.

Liam spoke to Jake Roos from Don't Burn Our Future about how the canning of the policy will actually be better for both the environment and our cost of living.
