Sack MP Peter Lilley from Commons Energy Committee

Why is this important?

Peter Lilley has been accused of lying and making deliberately misleading statements regarding fracking and its safety on national television (Channel 4 news 26/1/14). He was unable to adequately defend his statements. It is vitally important that any minister involved in such a sensitive area be trustworthy.
He also has a conflict of interest as he is employed by Cayman Islands-based oil and gas company Tethys Petroleum and so has a vested interest in promoting fossil fuels and not investing in their alternatives.

Reasons for signing

  • All MPs should be exposed and sacked if they have a conflict of interests. .. their job is to represent the people of their constituency, if they have another job that effectively means they can't fulfil their role as MP then they must step down or be made to leave.
  • Can Mr Lilley not recognise a conflict of interest?
  • He's a proven liar and is working for oil interests
