Help ban bee-harming pesticides

Friends of the Earth Director, Andy Atkins, has written to the Government asking it to ban the worst bee-harming pesticides. Add your name to his letter. 

Three weeks ago the Government ignored scientific evidence and independent experts. It failed to back a two year ban on the three neonicotinoid pesticides most dangerous to bees.

Now a leading group of cross-party MPs has told the Government to change its position and overhaul its pesticides policy.

Members of the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) have spent months hearing evidence on both sides of the argument. And its report is unanimous. Even MPs from the Government’s own Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties agree Ministers should back a neonicotinoid ban – and dramatically improve the process for testing pesticide safety.
