Are political parties beginning to realise that Fracking is deeply unpopular & an issue for the next general election?


This week Labour tabled amendments in the House of Lords to the Government’s Infrastructure Bill that would significantly tighten the regulations for shale gas extraction in the UK.
Labour still believe that shale gas production is necessary but has now set out the environmental and regulatory conditions that need to be met to ensure that any future shale extraction is properly controlled.  Labour is pushing the Government to improve the current regulatory framework, which has crucial and unacceptable flaws.
  The Green Party remains to be the only major political party taking action to stop fracking.
