House of Commons
MORATORIUM ON FRACKING
EDM #831
Tabled 22 January 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House welcomes the National Grid's figures showing that 2017 was the greenest year in history in terms of generated electricity; expresses concern that despite the increase in renewable energy, fracking for shale gas is still being considered despite the viable renewable alternatives that are available; regrets that the Government is not doing enough to address the serious concerns surrounding the process of fracking and questions the need for it; and urges the Government to call a moratorium until an assessment of the impact on carbon emissions has been made.
