he Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has offered no guarantee that the project would get a final go-ahead.

Clark’s move, taken after the collapse of outsourcing firm Carillion, came as protest groups and Labour politicians drew attention to the fact that Carillion’s former chief executive, Keith Cochrane, is now the non-executive chairman of Third Energy.

Additional information is on site (a Guardian article on the environment) as well as a quiz about fracking.

Please, note, comment, and forward.

"No fracking operations have taken place in the UK since 2011, when it was found to be the probable cause of minor earthquakes around a test site on the Fylde coastal plain in western Lancashire."

May they be halted PERMANENTLY, everywhere!!!

TY Fiona
