WIGLEY SEEKS URGENT MEETING ON FRACKING WITH SECRETARY OF STATE
Plaid Cymru's Lord Dafydd Wigley is seeking an urgent meeting with the Secretary of State for Wales, Stephen Crabb, to clarify UK government policy on fracking in Wales.
Lord Wigley said:
"Recent developments in North West England, and the active search by fracking companies for new locations, underlined the need for total clarity that fracking can't go ahead in any part of Wales without the express permission of the Assembly.
"The present position is muddled, and there is a dragging of feet in getting a new Wales Bill onto the statute book.
"I am seeking an urgent meeting with the Secretary of State whom I will press to clarify the situation."
"Plaid Cymru is the only party which has consistently opposed fracking at Westminster and Cardiff Bay."
