Leon Duveen addressing the Liberal Democrat Spring Conference in York during the Fracking debateOn Saturday 12th March, the Liberal Democrats overwhelmingly voted for a ban on Fracking in England & Wales in a debate at their Spring Conference in York.

During in the debate, I was able to give a short speech.   Among other thing I  said that “the reason I am opposed to fracking, and so should you be, is that, it is uneconomic, will not deal with energy security and it makes meeting our Climate Change obligations almost impossible.

This is fantastic news for us in Bassetlaw & Sherwood.  Working with others in the party we have been able to convince Conference that Fracking needs to be banned and we can now go out and campaign even harder against those who want to drill in our area.
