PM promises councils 'fracking' boost
Prime Minister David Cameron has said councils that back fracking will be allowed to keep millions of pounds generated in tax by the industry.
Mr Cameron said English local authorities would receive all the business rates collected from shale gas schemes - rather than the usual 50%.
On a visit to an oilfield in Lincolnshire David Cameron said the benefits were "enormous".
