Climate Change Policy (23 Apr 2019)

Caroline Lucas: The Minister regularly takes me to task for not being positive enough about her Government, so I am going to surprise her. I am going to overlook the fracking, the expansion of Heathrow airport and the new coalfield up in Cumbria, and say that when it comes to global climate work the Government are doing good work. But even there, it is undermined by the work of the UK export credit agency,...

Proportional Representation: House of Commons — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (23 Apr 2019)

Cat Smith: ...see why. Communities are often affected by decisions over which they have no say or, even when they think they have a say, a Government can come in to override it, as in Lancashire in the case of fracking. Many people feel that what goes on in Westminster is a world away from the reality of their lives. Research published by the Hansard Society found that the UK public are increasingly...

Protestors’ Rights - Question (9 Apr 2019)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...engaged at the earliest possible stage with local communities, and that it would stand INEOS and those companies in good stead if they would respect the energy law laid down that there will be no fracking in, near, above or below a national park?

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (2 Apr 2019)

Elaine Smith: ...the committee heard evidence on the importance of monitoring other harmful emissions, such as methane, and acknowledged the potential for targets to positively impact on air quality. I believe that fracking would challenge our ambitions. Fracking is an issue of major concern in my community. As MSPs, we have a responsibility to protect our communities from harm. Fracking has proven deeply...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Counter-terrorism: Resources (1 Apr 2019)

Ben Wallace: ...will know that when police forces come under pressure—such as when they respond to a terrorist incident, to an incident such as Salisbury or, indeed, as in my constituency, to a process such as fracking—there is an extra grant for those police forces. We have refunded extra money to police forces in Dorset, London and Manchester, and we will continue to do so. That is why we have this...

Permitted Development and Shale Gas Exploration (28 Mar 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: ...environmental impacts, particularly the industrialisation of the countryside, water contamination and seismic activity. But most of all—I wish the Minister would listen—there is a concern that fracked fuel is a fossil fuel. The Government should entirely change direction and invest in renewables instead. Let us change direction, take some action on climate change and ditch fracking....

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (27 Mar 2019)

Alison Johnstone: ...there are other uses for them. I thank the member for his intervention. New fossil fuels must also be kept in the ground. We believe that Scotland needs, in primary legislation, an outright ban on fracking. It is frustrating that the Scottish Government is dragging its feet on setting out its preferred policy position. I note Claudia Beamish’s efforts in pursuing that matter outside of...

Fracking (Seismic Activity) (19 Mar 2019)

Lee Rowley: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require fracking operators to monitor seismic activity caused by fracking and take steps if such activity exceeds certain levels; and for connected purposes. It is great to have the opportunity to talk about this issue today. Fracking is a controversial and difficult subject on which people take different views. Often, when fracking is...

Flooding in Cumbria (19 Mar 2019)

Tim Farron: ...catastrophe. The Government have moved away from renewable energy. They have changed feed-in tariffs, so that it is harder for businesses to invest in solar energy, while giving licences for fracking. The Guardian recently outed the Government as providing some of the heaviest bursaries for gas and oil companies. The cancellation of the Swansea tidal lagoon proves that the Government have...
