Responding to the Scottish Government's announcement of another consultation on fracking, Scottish Liberal Democrat energy spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"Nicola Sturgeon stood up in Parliament and declared that fracking was banned, then her government's lawyers stood up in the Court of Session and argued that it wasn't.

"This confusion at the heart of the Scottish Government's approach has left communities worrying about their futures.

"Liberal Democrats are clear that embarking on a whole new front of carbon-based fuels and energy production would do nothing to help meet our climate commitments."
