Text of Petition
Now your Government has declared a climate emergency, we ask that these words should be removed from the draft Marine Plan: "optimising the economic development and recovery of UK oil & gas resource in order to provide Welsh and wider UK businesses and consumers with a secure and resilient supply of fossil fuels".
This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 07/01/2020.
The Committee considered the petition for the first time and agreed to close the petition on the basis that there appears to be little more that the petition could achieve in light of the revisions made to the oil and gas objective in the adopted version of the Welsh National Marine Plan, and the Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs’ stated intention to avoid extraction of fossil fuels within the Welsh onshore licence area. The Committee also agreed to thank the petitioner for using the petitions process.
