Public Perception of Bio-fuels

According to the NFU, the UK public answered a survey on Bio-fuel Crops as follows:

Question: Should farmers grow crops to provide bio-fuels?

Agree Strongly: 19%
Agree: 41%
Neither Agree or Disagree: 34%
Disagree: 5%
Disagree Strongly 1%

Public opinion is clearly skewed in favor of bio-fuels. I wonder if the answers would be the same if the question had been:

Question: Should farmers grow bio-fuel crops at the expense of self-sufficiency in food production?
