star this property answer text <p>Source Protection Zones identify the area of an aquifer that provides the water abstracted at the drinking water supply borehole. Source Protection Zones 1 (SPZ1) are the area within which pollution would take less than 50 days to reach an abstraction point and where the consequences of groundwater pollution would therefore be greatest. They are used by the Environment Agency as a tool for regulation. The Environment Agency will not permit drilling for oil or gas in an SPZ1. Outside SPZ1s the Environment Agency will require a site specific risk assessment and will only permit drilling for oil or gas if it is satisfied that there is no significant risk to supplies of drinking water and no unacceptable impact on groundwater.</p><p><br></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to doing our part to tackle climate change, in line with the Climate Change Act. Under the Act we are already required to reduce UK emissions by 80% by 2050 compared to 1990 levels, and to meet our carbon budgets, which set emissions reduction targets up to 2027. The Climate Change Act also commits us to set an economy-wide carbon budget for the period 2028-32 by 30<sup>th</sup> June 2016. As we stated in our 2015 manifesto, we will cut emissions as cost-effectively as possible and will not support additional distorting and expensive power sector targets.</p> more like this
