PM: UK to Support Shale Gas Fracking

In contrast to Scotland’s ban on fracking, Prime Minister Theresa May has stated that she intends for the government to increase support for fracking.

The support for fracking was shown during this week’s meeting for Prime Minister’s Questions, where the Prime Minister stated her case following the result of the Scottish vote to ban the technique altogether.

‘Good for the UK’

Mrs May stated exactly why she would not go the same way as Scotland on the issue of fracking when questioned by the SNP’s Tommy Sheppard: “I think shale gas does have the potential to power economic growth in this country.”

“I think it will support thousands of jobs in the oil and gas industries and in other sectors and it will provide a new domestic energy source.”

“We have more than 50 years of drilling experience in the UK and one of the best records in the world for economic development while protecting our environment.”

“This is an important potential new source of energy and I think it’s right that we ensure that we use this and take the benefits of it for our economy, jobs and for people’s futures.”

During the discussion, the Prime Minister stated that the Shale Wealth Fund will ensure that local councils retain 100% of the rates they collect from shale developments.

While £1 billion of additional resources will be inserted into local communities.
