Please provide your comments on the environmental permit application received from Cuadrilla Bowland Limited (Required)
There is enough evidence from around the globe (from the USA, Canada and Australia for example) to show that Unconventional gas and oil extraction is responsible for high levels of widespread environmental pollution, certainly for air and water pollution. This is a new industry for this country and I cannot see how any company, Cuadrilla andRedacted textto name but two, can demonstrate that they can operate in a safe way at any level, from drilling to disposal of waste materials, especially when their operations abroad are beset with failures in this respect. Exploration cannot be considered as a separate issue since it is but the initial stage of a much wider and even more destructive operation. I urge you to reject this application.
