by Steve Beasant on 6 October, 2016

lynneCommenting on today’s landmark decision by the Government to overturn the decision by the local council and to approve fracking in Lancashire, Liberal Democrat Climate and Energy Spokesperson, Lynne Featherstone said:

“This decision sets a very dangerous precedent, with the government riding roughshod over the will of the local people.

“Fracking poses a huge risk to our countryside, environment and efforts to tackle climate change, we must continue to fight it at every turn.

“At a time when the rest of the world is moving to low carbon, this Conservative government is taking us completely in the wrong direction.”
