Infrastructure Bill — New Clause 9 — Moratorium on Onshore Unconventional Petroleum — Review Impacts of Exploitation — 26 Jan 2015 at 17:30

The majority of MPs voted not to ban the exploitation of unconventional petroleum (including "fracking") for at least 18 months and not to require a review of the impact of such exploitation on climate change, the environment, the economy, and health and safety be carried out and published.

MPs were considering the Infrastructure Bill[1]

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was:

  • ‘(1) All use of land for development consisting of the exploitation of unconventional petroleum in Great Britain shall be discontinued during the relevant period.
  • (2) The Secretary of State must ensure that an independent assessment is undertaken of the exploitation of unconventional petroleum in Great Britain including the use of high volume hydraulic fracturing.
  • (3) The assessment must take account of the impacts of the exploitation of the unconventional petroleum on—
  • (a) climate change;
  • (b) the environment;
  • (c) health and safety; and
  • (d) the economy.
  • (4) The Secretary of State must—
  • (a) consult such persons as the Secretary of State thinks fit; and
  • (b) publish the assessment within the relevant period.
  • (5) For the purposes of subsections (1) to (4)—
  • “relevant period” means a period of not less than 18 months and not more than 30 months commencing on the date two months after Royal Assent;
  • “unconventional petroleum” means petroleum which does not flow readily to the wellbore.
  • (6) In section 3 of the Petroleum Act 1998, at the end of subsection (4) add “and subsection (4A).
  • “(4A) Nothing in this section permits the grant of a licence to search and bore for and get unconventional petroleum in Great Britain during the relevant period.
  • (4B) For the purposes of subsection (4A) “relevant period” and “unconventional petroleum” have the meaning specified in section [Moratorium on onshore unconventional petroleum] of the Infrastructure Act 2015.”
