Fracking: No moratorium/Moratorium

On Monday 26 January, in Westminster Labour claimed a 'victory' over fracking, while in fact abstaining on a vote for a moratorium. Jim Murphy, leader of Scottish Labour, has claimed to be against fracking but didn't even show up for the vote.

On Wednesday 28 January, in Holyrood, the Scottish Government announced its support for a moratorium on fracking, following the lead of the Scottish Greens who proposed a ban last year. Keep your eye out for the consultation, and your chance to ask for the moratorium to be made permanent.
