Onshore Hydraulic Fracturing

The vote before MPs today, December 16th, was to secure protection for the following areas from fracking:

Groundwater source areas
National Parks
The Broads
Areas of outstanding natural beauty
World Heritage Sites

I voted in favour of banning fracking at a depth of less than 1,200 metres beneath these areas.

Legislation introducing Onshore Hydraulic Fracturing itself was passed in the UK prior to this parliament.
