The Government has said they disagree with a new report by the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), which issued warnings over "risky" drilling in the Arctic.
A spokesman said:
[The] UK is not an Arctic State and it is not for us to tell other countries which resources they can and cannot extract from their own sovereign territory.
We also believe that our approach to oil and gas exploration in the Arctic is consistent with our commitment to limit average global temperature increase to two degrees.
The UK does have strong environmental, economic, scientific and political interests in the Arctic and this summer we will be publishing an Arctic Policy Framework for the first time.
