2017-19 Session
That this House notes that, since fracking was resumed in Lancashire in October 2018, the safety limit threshold for earthquakes has been breached three times, including one at Preston New Road that recorded eight times the energy of the 0.5 Red light magnitude set by the Government; further notes that the Government announced on 16 October 2018 that it has no plans to change the traffic light thresholds; and calls on the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to uphold the present traffic light system requiring any fracking company to cease fracking after triggering a tremor in excess of 0.5 on the Richter Scale.
