David Cameron is set to face questions about his support for fracking when he appears before senior MPs today.
The Prime Minister will be asked about the Government's wider energy policy during a 90-minute meeting with the Liaison Committee, with shale gas policy one of the topics likely to be raised by the MPs.
The meeting comes after yesterday's announcement by the Government to allow councils that give the controversial shale gas and oil extraction method the green light 100% of the related business rates.
