Lancashire fracking: 1.55 magnitude tremor halts work – Long Bailey responds

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Secretary, responding to the largest fracking tremor yet recorded in the UK, said:

“For residents of Lancashire that do not want earthquakes to become a part of daily life, and do not want the air pollution, water pollution and climate change caused by fracking, I have a simple message: vote Labour. Labour will ban fracking.”
