Jacob Rhys-Mogg has been flogged by conservative MPs for moving the government to lift a ban on prostitution.
The new business secretary is advised by Tories, who is concerned about the impact of fracking on their constituents.
one warned him about Another recommended community is being “acquired” and a member of the House of Representatives warned that his congressman had “Severe objection”
In a 2019 statement, the Conservatives pledged not to lift the British moratorium unless fracking is scientifically proven to be safe.
However, Rees-Mogg confirmed Thursday that lifting the shale gas ban would “Bring us cheaper energy”
He also revealed that he had spoken to Prime Minister Kwasi Kwarteng about ways to directly compensate people in the community who supported the brawl.
Fracking, also known as hydraulic fracturing, is a method of recovering shale gas and oil.
It drills into the ground and pushes a mixture of water, sand and high-pressure chemicals into the rock. The gas is released from the inside by opening the split rock.
Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine prompts the government to make a U-turn. While the Russian president has blocked global supply, there are still serious concerns about the impact of the rift. especially the vibration of the soil
“Isn’t forecasting earthquakes as a result of the ruptures still a challenge for experts?
“Is there therefore not a risk of unknown quantities to carry out current shale gas exploration? Does he know that public safety is not the currency some of us choose to speculate on?”
Rees-Mogg said it was a matter of “proportion” and claimed there was no evidence that shale gas It’s “worse” in terms of ground impact than mining or oil extraction.
House MP Mark Menzies said that if Prime Minister Liz Truss “remains a woman in her words”, the government will have to determine how local consent is created.
Menzies also slapped Rees-Mogg’s comments that made anti-fracking “nonsense”, telling him: “There is nothing worth knowing about the people of Lancashire or Fylde.
“I just want to start by saying how disappointed I am that Parliament was not informed of this before the press. and as a member of the local parliament I have not been courteous despite asking for two weeks to contact a member of honor for information via his PPS. I have sent letters. I have sent WhatsApps. Nothing is returned.”
Mark Fletcher, a conservative MP for Bolsover in Derbyshire, said it appears communities are being “acquired” to allow fracking.
He told Rees-Mogg that the local consent plan It “doesn’t seem to clear” and added: “It seems to come back to the community that was bought out instead of voting.”
Another Tory colleague, Scott Benton, expressed concern, saying his Blackpool South team members had
Prime Minister Liz Truss has defended violating Tory’s pledge to lift the fracking ban, insisting she won’t allow it. “What is at risk”
A review of earthquake risk conducted by the British Geological Survey concluded that forecasts “It remains a scientific challenge for the geoscience community.”
The study says little scientific progress has been made in the field. More information is needed to draw conclusions about potential environmental impacts.
Shadow climate change secretary Ed Miliband said the government had “broken” the contract, even though there was no change in the scientific evidence.
“They are lifting the ban. But they can’t give evidence…in the absence of evidence. [Rees-Mogg’s] The approach is to change safety limits,” he said.
He described the proposal as “Dangerous experiments,” he added. “We will hang this broken pledge on their necks in all parts of the country between now and the next general election.”
