France UMP challenge their own anti-fracking law.

Important news – UMP challenge anti-fracking law.

In his most recent newsletter/bulletin Ardeche députe Pascale Terrasse, who spear-headed the campaign for an anti-fracking law in France ( later to become the much watered-down loi jacob ) has raised concerns that the UMP opposition party have recently tabled a motion in the upper house of the French parliament seeking to amend the law.
The senators failed in their attempt, but we have not the slightest doubt that they will try again.
It is worth noting perhaps that only the current government are opposed to fracking. All opposition parties ( UMP, Front National ++ ) who will seek election in 2017 have declared that they are in favour of exploration en France.
