• Motion: Lobbying the government on bee killing pesticide u-turn

    18th February 2021 | News | Claire
  • I was appalled to see that the government has u-turned on the use of the notorious bee killing pestcides, neonicitonoids.

    My motion before full council today is as follows:

    This council regrets the government’s u-turn on using neonicitinoids banned under EU law, and which have proved to be damaging to our vital bee population, other insects and birds and water courses.

    This council calls on the government to urgently reverse its decision.

    Before being debated at the April full council, my motion will be referred to the March cabinet meeting.
