LONDON (Reuters) - The "reckless gold rush" of oil and gas exploration in the Arctic should stop until stronger safeguards against spills are introduced, a UK Parliament committee said on Thursday, just days after Shell put a drilling project on hold.

The report by the Environmental Audit Committee, made up of UK Members of Parliament, called for a halt to drilling until a pan-Arctic oil spill response standard is put in place.
