The Next Labour Government Will Ban Fracking

Our view has been that unless stringent environmental tests can be passed by would-be frackers, then no fracking should take place. Last year, when Parliament was debating the Infrastructure Bill, Labour outlined 13 core environmental tests that we believed the fracking regime would have to pass before any drilling could start. These included an outright ban on fracking in or under areas of environmental sensitivity, such as National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and all levels of water protection zones.
