The WHO Pandemic Treaty is a legally binding agreement that will commit the U.K. to adopt all measures set out by the Director-General during a future 'pandemic'. Yet Parliament will at no point scrutinise or vote on it.

“The EPA contacted me in the aftermath of an Irish Times article last week about its prosecution of Shell and asked me was I aware that they were taking statements from local people about the flaring. They advised me that if there was anyone I knew who witnessed the flaring and wished to make a statement that they should do so,” Mary Corduff said.

She confirmed the last flaring incidents she witnessed was on Tuesday last, July 5 and that it had continued for some 20 minutes.

“Shell being forced to pay a fine because of flaring won’t make the people of the area any safer,” she said.
Last January Shell stated that the New Year’s Eve flaring was ‘exceptional’ and that the company would ‘take all measures to minimise further occurrences’, which it said would be ‘intermittent in the coming days’ as first gas was brought ashore....
