Just wondered if any of you know of this.
In a matter of days or even hours, our Environment Minister may allow banned toxic chemicals to be used on UK fields. 1 It’s the profit hungry pesticide industry vs. our beautiful countryside.
Liz Truss, the Environment Minister, is about to decide whether to rubber stamp a request to ignore the European ban on bee-killing pesticides, and allow them on our fields this autumn. Even her own experts rejected the application, but they’ve now been gagged by the government. 2 It’s all pretty dodgy. But it’s not too late.
We need to act fast. If she sees how much public anger there’ll be if she does the bidding of the chemical industry bosses rather than protecting our environment, she’ll be forced to do the right thing. Let’s make sure Liz Truss keeps our fields free from chemicals which are blamed by scientists around the world for killing bees and birds. 3
