Time to declare fracking policy

Despite assurances that the water supply at Woodburn Reservoir in Carrickfergus is not at risk from the fracking operation, many people remain fearful about the very real risks to the domestic supply for large areas.

How ironic is it that the same parties and politicians who have granted drilling rights at Woodburn Forest and support fracking may soon be expecting people to pay for the very water that they are placing at risk. Perhaps it is time for all parties to say whether or not they are in favour of fracking and water charges.
