LONDON, June 24 (Reuters) - British officials have adjourned until Monday the process for deciding whether to grant shale gas firm Cuadrilla Resources a project planning permit in northwest England. If approved, the shale gas project at Preston New Road near Blackpool could become Britain's first producing shale gas site. A decision was expected on Wednesday, but councillors at the Lancashire County Council decided to gather additional legal advice and deferred a vote until next week.
