The Government promised to protect our drinking water from fracking. But now they want to let fracking companies drill straight through drinking water aquifers.
The Government's own report found that even an indirect exposure to contaminated water from fracking could create health risks. Clean drinking water is a precious resource and essential to life. We must not risk polluting it.
They have also gone back on their promise not to allow fracking in national parks and wildlife sites in England.
Dirty fracking also takes us in completely the wrong direction if we are to tackle dangerous climate change.
This is an unacceptable risk to our health and well-being. The Government is trying to put this change through without a vote by all MPs.
Please tell your MP to protect our drinking water from fracking.
