That this House notes that Sussex's picturesque countryside faces a persistent threat of environmental degradation and air pollution as a result of fracking for shale gas; calls on the Government to immediately cease the issuing of permits for the development and expansion of shale gas fracking; agrees that new thinking is needed if the UK is to satisfy its energy demands; and believes that this can only be achieved through further investment in renewable alternatives.
