Bring the metaldehyde slug pellet ban forward to March 2021

Petition Details

Research proves that metaldehyde is a poison for wildlife, we can't allow another 18 months of damage to our countryside which includes at risk animals and already polluted soils. Please bring the date forward to 31 March 2021.

Additional Information

On the 18th September 2020 the Government (for the second time) made the data and research led decision to ban the use of metaldehyde in the UK. Metaldehyde proven to kill wildlife. However the date of the ban is 31 March 2022, allowing another 18 months of damage to our countryside, which doesn't make sense. We know it's harmful, ban it now.
