I don’t want fracking anywhere near my constituency and I told the Minister as much in the Commons this week.
There have been multiple reports of earth tremors in Lancashire after fracking was given the green light there, forcing Cuadrilla to temporarily halt operations.
Bizarrely, the response of the industry has not been to stop and take stock, but to call for these protections to be relaxed allowing them to carry on fracking even if a tremor is detected.
Other countries including the Republic of Ireland, France and Germany have banned it. Labour would, and this government must too.
