Fracking a manifesto issue for Isle of Wight Lib Dems

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 - 15:11

ISLE of Wight Lib Dems have taken their concerns about fracking to the party's national conference.
Fighting fracking will be one of the party's manifesto pledges at May’s Isle of Wight Council elections.
Isle of Wight party chair Nicholas Belfitt was among those who attended the conference, held in York over the weekend, to meet with members of the Green Lib Dems and Frack Free Unite and address how best Liberal councils can stop fracking.
He said: "It’s important to bring the concerns we have on the Island to every occasion we can, and working with the national party will really empower the change we can have on the Island.
"The Island is desperate for a renewable power source which would provide green energy and jobs that will last. We as liberals will make the economic and environmental case both locally and nationally."
Nicholas stood alongside party leader Tim Farron and York Lib Dems currently campaigning to stop fracking in Yorkshire.
"The Isle of Wight Liberal Democrats will be hoping to apply the same pressure after May," he said.
