The spotlight turned onto fracking and shale gas during the last week in Westminster.
- The Queen’s Speech on Wednesday (June 4th) included legislation to change the trespass laws to make it easier for exploration companies to drill under private land without permission.
- There was a written ministerial statement on the proposals and a government consultation process
- Fracking also came up in a debate on the Finance Bill
- More than 20 MPs raised issues about fracking and asked questions, along with 15 members of the House of Lords
We’ve split up the material into separate posts:
