The suggestion that shale gas production could lead to carbon savings is an approach we find questionable when available evidence suggests that Government is not able to meet the Committee on Climate Change's (CCC) three tests that are required to justify shale gas production in the framework of current and future Carbon Budgets.

Hydraulic fracturing - at any stage - is not considered compatible within the framework of these tests. Planning decisions made at the county level cannot secure any legal commitment to lower imports of natural gas.
