Caroline has responded to the release of a secret Government report into fracking. The report, which has been hidden away by ministers, adds to growing evidence of a number of environmental dangers associated with fracking.
In response to the release of the report Caroline said:
“It’s no surprise at all that the Government has been so reluctant to release this damning report.
“The evidence in this report – that local communities could suffer from deafening noise pollution, surface water contamination and hikes in insurance costs – adds further weight to the growing case against fracking in Britain.
“The Government has conducted itself appallingly in holding back this crucial evidence. The Environment Secretary should now offer a full apology to communities facing the threat of fracking and guarantee that such deceitful behaviour won’t happen again in the future.”
