The UK's biggest business lobbying group, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), has welcomed today's report on fracking in the UK:
The Government has signalled that gas should play a big part in moving to a low-carbon economy, so it makes sense to explore new gas sources here, rather than increasingly depend on sources from elsewhere in the world.
Provided safety standards are observed, shale gas [fracking] could unlock significant new infrastructure investments, help meet our carbon reduction goals and create many new jobs around the UK.
