SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT WINS FRACKING CASE

Following today's ruling by the Court of Session which found in favour of the Scottish Government's actions on fracking in Scotland, the SNP MSP for Falkirk East Angus MacDonald said: 
 

"The Scottish Government's actions won the backing of the Scottish Parliament – and today's ruling completely supports the steps taken by both.
 
“Following this decision there is no change to policy on fracking in Scotland and communities can rest easy that permission is not about to be given for fracking near their homes.
 
"The Scottish Government is rightly making sure that future policy is robust and can be defended against any further legal challenges. 
 
“Meanwhile in England, the Tories are intent on fracking underneath people's homes, in the face of considerable public opposition, without any concern for the impact on people’s health, the environment or their communities.
 
"The SNP has taken a cautious, evidence-led approach to this issue, and that has been upheld as the right approach by the court today.”
