Quote:

A new advisor to the Energy Secretary Amber Rudd, who has vowed to “deliver” fracking in Britain, received a £5,000 donation to his local party from a company set to benefit from the introduction of the technique, The Independent can reveal.

Addison Projects, part of a £25m engineering company based in Lancashire which has said it wants to play an “active role” in supporting fracking, made the donation to the constituency party of Conservative MP Paul Maynard in March.

Mr Maynard was appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Ms Rudd after last month’s General Election, a role which requires him to be the Cabinet minister’s “eyes and ears” in Parliament.

The donation, revealed following a joint investigation by The Independent and Greenpeace, has sparked criticism from the environmental group that the Government has become too close to the shale gas lobby.

That really is great news! Let's hope it sets a precedent for others to follow.
