URGENT: Ask your MP to back fracking moratorium
On Monday, MPs will be voting on a series of amendments to the Infrastructure Bill, including one to introduce a moratorium on fracking.
This is the perfect opportunity to call a halt to the Government’s reckless and irresponsible pursuit of unconventional gas, which poses a grave threat to people’s health and the environment.
Email your MP
Whatever the party of your MP, please take, and share, this action asking them to vote in favour of a frack free UK on Monday:
Call your MP
Do you have a Labour MP? If so, please could you give their office a call? There are rumours Labour might change their position on fracking to back a moratorium, which would make a huge difference to our chance of keeping the UK frack free.
You can find your MP’s contact details at
Just give their office a ring, say you’re a constituent, that you think fracking is a terrible idea, and that you’d like them to back a moratorium on fracking by voting for amendments NC9 & 68 in the Infrastructure Bill debate on Monday.
Feel free to also mention amendments 50 (which would remove a duty to maximise oil & gas extraction) and 51 (which would remove a change to the trespass law that would allow companies to drill under people’s homes without telling them).
See this briefing for more details:
