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.

French, but easily translated via Google translate - at least sufficiently (!)
to gain an insight)............................
