Fracking should be banned, not promoted – Rebecca Long Bailey
Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the Government’s announcement to try and make planning applications easier for fracking projects, said:
“Fracking should be banned, not promoted.
“But the Government is encouraging this dirty fossil fuel by making the planning application easier and creating a special fracking regulator.
“Labour will ban fracking and boost renewable energy projects. We will fix our broken energy system by creating publicly owned, locally accountable companies and co-operatives.”
