Scottish Labour "Sham" on Fracking | Scottish National Party

Scottish Labour "Sham" on Fracking | Scottish National Party | My Scotland | Scoop.it

The Scottish National Party has described Scottish Labour’s policy on fracking as a “sham” as the vast majority of Scottish Labour MPs abstained on a key fracking vote in the House of Commons today.

 They abstained on the moratorium on fracking for 18-30 months in today’s Infrastructure Bill. Scottish Labour’s position on the vote was unclear following a BBC Radio interview on BBC Good Morning Scotland on Saturday with their spokesperson, Sarah Boyack MSP, who repeatedly refused to set out how they will vote.
