Ministers questioned on fracking planning guidance

21 May 2018

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee questions Housing Minister Dominic Raab MP and Energy Minister Claire Perry MP as part of the inquiry into planning guidance on fracking.


Monday 21 May in the Wilson Room, Portcullis House

At 4.30pm

  • Dominic Raab MP, Minister for Housing, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
  • Claire Perry MP, Minister for Energy and Clean Growth, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Purpose of the session

The session is the last in the inquiry which is examining whether guidance for local authorities taking planning decisions on fracking applications needs to be updated or improved.

Members of the Committee will have the chance to put to the Ministers evidence heard so far on whether existing guidance is adequate and whether there is a need for a comprehensive guidance document. Members are also likely to raise questions about the written ministerial statement on fracking planning policy that was published on 17 May.
