I emailed my MP and I said:

New Areas Opened up to FrackingDear Stewart Jackson,

I am writing to ask you to vote against the Government’s changes to the Infrastructure Bill on fracking that remove any guarantee that drinking water sources will be protected from fracking, and to call for an immediate fracking moratorium.

The changes made in the House of Lords weaken several of the 13 conditions accepted by Government in the House of Commons, including vital provisions to protect drinking water from fracking.

Please vote to ensure fracking is banned in all ground water source protection zones 1 – 3.

Although these protections would make fracking safer, they cannot make it safe because fracking is inherently risky, and would exacerbate climate change.

I am therefore asking that you call for an immediate fracking moratorium in the House of Commons. While the UK Government attempts to weaken the few protections we have, the rest of Britain is taking measures to protect the health of communities and the climate.

I urge you call on Government to follow the lead of Wales and Scotland by bringing forward an immediate fracking moratorium so that the risks to health and climate change can be fully investigated.

The sooner we follow in the footsteps of France, Germany, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, New York State, Denton (Texas) – and the rest of Britain – by stopping fracking, the better for our communities, the climate and our local environment.

Yours Sincerely,
Fiona Radic
