The next Labour government will ban fracking

Today at Labour party conference I announced that the next Labour government will ban fracking outright.   


Fracking locks us into an energy infrastructure that is based on fossil fuels long after our country needs to have moved to renewables.  

The next Labour government will back the clean technologies of the future.  

We will consult with our colleagues in industry and the Trade Unions about the best way to transition our energy industry to create the vital jobs and apprenticeships we are going to need for the UK’s low-carbon future.
