Fracking Ban Backed by Scottish Parliament

The Scottish government has voted to back a ban on fracking.

MSPs voted 91 to 28 in favour of the ban, following up the Scottish Government’s announcements earlier in October where it was stated that support would not be forthcoming for the controversial shale gas extraction method.

Public fracking consultations had been carried out which showed that of 60,000 respondents, only 1% were in favour of the technique.

Scottish Energy Minister, Paul Wheelhouse claimed his victory was ‘overwhelming’ and stated:

“We undertook one of the most far-reaching examinations of unconventional oil and gas ever carried out by any government and created numerous opportunities throughout the process for discourse and debate.”

“Today the Scottish Parliament did the right thing for Scotland and endorsed our position.”

“The Scottish Government has said ‘no’ to fracking in Scotland.”

This decision, however, is not final as the government is still required to carry out a Strategic Environmental Assessment before a formal decision is made.
