The chief executive of leading fracking company Cuadrilla has warned that the industry will grind to a halt in Britain, unless the Government allows it to drill under people's property without permission.
Cuadrilla chief Francis Egan told The Times (£) it would be "ridiculous" to negotiate access with every landowner.
Asked what would happen if the attempt to change the law failed, he said: "I don't think the industry will go ahead in the UK."
