I use this page to post updates on my campaign to stop Fracking. Too see what I've said & done previously visit my archive page.
Today, I met with leading anti fracking campaigners, Independent Chartered Engineer Mike Hill, Balcombe, resident and campaigner Kathryn Mcwhirter and Phillip Penning who leads on Energy and Climate Change for the Trade Union Congress (TUC).
We met to discuss fracking and the shortcomings of the regulatory system in the UK as well as a deep and concerning lack of understanding of the risks posed by fracking, both among the public and within Government.
After the meeting, I used my position as Chair of my party's committee on Energy and Climate Change to secure a meeting between Mike, Kathryn, Philip and Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey.
