Save our Bees - Keep Ban on Bee-killing Pesticides

95 of 100 signatures

One of the First Acts of the Conservative party since leaving the EU has been to give localised authorisation to sugar beet farmers in England to use a class of pesticides that are banned within the EU because of the damage they do to wild and honey bee populations.

We believe this is a dangerous precedent that should not be allowed to go ahead.

Our MP is a junior member of the DEFRA team that could prevent this threat to our environment.

I the undersigned call on Fay Jones MP to use her influence at DEFRA to protect our bee populations and continue the ban on pesticides containing neonicotinoid thiamethoxam
