SNP Members Against Unconventional Gas (SMAUG)

A group of SNP members have set up an anti fracking pressure group asking the Scottish Government to ban fracking and to include unconventional gas.

Flick Monk of Friends of the Earth said:   “It is clear that local communities do not want their health and environment damaged by energy companies aiming to extract gas at any cost.
“SNP branches from all over the country have proposed a range of resolutions for the party conference calling for a complete ban on all unconventional fossil fuels.
“All eyes will now be on the party conference as SNP members will get the chance to debate how to go beyond the current moratorium and ban unconventional fossil fuels outright.”
