Fracking Week in Parliament Fracking is being imposed against the wishes of people in North Yorkshire, a Conservative peer said this afternoon.
Anti-fracking campaigners say the Ryedale area of North Yorkshire could see up to 950 fracking wells.
The chief executive of Cuadrilla, Francis Egan, rejected claims from a senior MP that the fracking industry was self-regulated. And he warned that nothing would get done if regulators were looking over the industry’s shoulder.
MPs are being urged to demand the full release of a redacted government report on the impact of fracking on the rural economy.
