Liberal Party NEC Statement - Cuadrilla Resources ant-fracking protests injunction
The Liberal Party notes with disappointment the extension of fracking company Cuadrilla Resources injunction against protestors near its Preston New Road site.
Although there is nothing illegal in Caudrilla’s activities, the extension of the injunction reminds us that activity continues despite the rejection of the scheme by the local community.
This is a rejection that the Conservative government has purposefully decided to ignore, in the face of considerable public anxiety.
The Liberal Party re-iterates its opposition towards fracking which it considers to be of unproven economic benefit and carries with it un-quantified long-term environmental dangers.
We believe greater efforts should be put towards renewable energy schemes and the inclusion of solar panels in new housing projects as a responsible alternative to the government obsession with fracking.
