MP calls on Government to support key environmental campaign

Susan Elan Jones MP has written formally to call on the Government to protect the bee population by supporting a comprehensive ban on neonicotinoids.

The Clwyd South Labour MP said: “Bee-keeping is vital in our local area – and we need to be doing more to support the bee population and the production of honey. That’s why I want to see the Government following the science. We need a total ban on harmful pesticides, which have a severe effect on our wildlife.

Since last spring, I have been questioning the Government on another key environmental issue – the banning of microbeads (the pieces of plastic in products like shower gel and toothpaste that causes major damage to the world’s oceans). I am pleased the Government has changed its mind and decided to support a ban on these environmental menaces from 2017. However, we need the same sort of action to ban neonicotinoids. I urge the Government to act now.”
