Dear MP Name
NOTICE BEFORE ACTION
Your attention is drawn to the fully referenced document compiled by the professional group Concerned Health Professionals of New York, of which the introduction and executive summary are enclosed. The document details the self evident risks and harms of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), and contributed directly to the recent decision of New York State to ban the practice.
The full document can be viewed online at http://concernedhealthny.org/compendium/
The Infrastructure Act 2014/15 is highly likely to bring these risks and harms to the UK. You are hereby put on notice that you, along with other MPs supporting fracking, are potentially in breach of collective moral and legal duty to act in the interests of the nation as a whole (as set out in The Code of Conduct for Members of Parliament). In this context, you have an obligation to prevent long-term significant harm.
