EEF comment on Shale Gas announcement

Commenting on today’s announcement on shale gas, Steve Radley, Director of Policy at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said:

“The government continues to demonstrate a shift to a more balanced energy policy. Shale gas is a potentially game changing resource where, in the US, it has slashed energy prices and helped spur a re-industrialisation. As we continue to struggle to rebalance our economy and balance our books, we cannot ignore this potentially significant resource. Well-regulated exploration is the sensible approach."
