Whilst we were given assurances by this Government that any decisions relating to Fracking in the U.K will be made by local councils, a leaked letter
to Government Departments regarding Fracking, demonstrates the Governments desire to get it rolling in the U.K.
I am totally against Fracking, despite the reassurances given by the likes of Cuadrilla, as you usually find these type of assurances, assure nothing.
There will be a debate in the House in the next couple of weeks and apparently the only debate regarding Fracking in this Administrations reign. It
relates to two areas identified in Lancashire and Planning Officers are set to reject the application.
However, that could mean nothing if the Government get their way. In the annex attached to the letter the Government details what departments need to
do and by when.
Whilst the Government are beginning to make wholesale cuts in subsidies to Green/Alternative Energy markets, they are clearly trying to push the
Fracking agenda and at almost any cost.
