Continue the ban on the use of Neonicotinoids

Petition Details

The EU placed a ban on the use of Neonicotinoids due to the adverse effect it has on bees and other pollinators. As the UK has left the EU, the Government should uphold these restrictions in order to protect natural pollinators.

Additional Information

I am an ordinary UK resident who is concerned about the state of our declining wildlife. We have the responsibility to protect it and ensure that we can support it and prevent species becoming obsolete. With regards to bees and other pollinators that are affected by these pesticides, their decline will have a knock on effect with fruit and flower growers as well as honey producers many of whom are small businesses who will lose their livelihoods.
