Gas Pipeline Cuts Through Wales

Plaid MP wants work halted for inquiry
Dec 20 2007 by Martin Shipton, Western Mail

Plaid Cymru MP Adam Price last night called for all further commissioning work on the pipeline to be halted pending a UK Government investigation.
Mr Price said, “Very serious safety concerns have been raised and it is essential that before the pipeline is used to transport gas, the people of Wales can be confident that it is safe.”
Meanwhile opponents of the pipeline will today present their case to a meeting of the European Parliament’s petitions committee in Brussels.
The protestors claim the pipeline is ill-thought-out and dangerous, and that the scheme breaches several European directives.

Furthermore, were the people affected by this consulted, not only regarding possible dangers, but also about the disturbance and upheaval to the environment?
