As Norman Baker has called a debate about fracking in Westminster Hall this Tuesday morning – 25th November – it would be great if as many people as possible could contact him to help bolster any anti-fracking arguments with a firm expression of support from the constituency.
The debate could not be more pertinently timed with the Infrastructure Bill already having reached its first reading in the House of Commons on Thursday 20 November, only a day after it left the House of Lords!
This indicates that the government is keen to push the bill through over the new year period so we need to TAKE ACTION now!
Described by Monbiot as a ‘One Way Street to Oblivion’, this bill (in its current form) will grant fracking companies access to private land without having to request your permission and will allow for any substance (e.g. radioactive waste) to be disposed of anywhere (except under the Queen’s property).
>>> When writing to Norman, please include a short message requesting that he opposes this bill in its entirety as it passes through the House of Commons, making it clear that it represents a key electoral issue.
