Here’s the list of MPs who voted for a fracking moratorium – or temporary ban on fracking – during the Third Reading debate of the Infrastructure Bill. 52 MPs voted in favour of a fracking ban, but 308 voted against, so fracking will happen.
Most Labour MPs abstained – which means they didn’t vote either way. If your MP abstained they don’t appear on this list. That means they didn’t vote against fracking.
MPs weren’t even given the chance to vote on changes to trespass laws, because the debate went on so long. This means changes to trespass laws will happen, so fracking companies can drill under our homes without our permission.
AYES (voted for a temporary ban on fracking)
NOES (voted against a ban on fracking)
