Labour confirms plans to block all new North Sea oil and gas projects

  • New oil and gas licenses in the North Sea would be blocked under a Labour government, according to a Sunday Times report citing a party source; Keir Starmer is expected to make the announcement in Scotland next month.
  • The party has said that the move would cut climate emissions, create cleaner jobs, boost energy security and not increase bills for consumers. The party added that it would continue to use existing wells over coming decades.
  • The Conservative government supports new oil and gas exploration and the Westminster government controls energy licenses. In January, the Scottish government suggested a "presumption against new exploration for oil and gas".
