To Elizabeth Truss

Dear Liz Truss

Please don't make decisions about our bees behind closed doors

The British public really care about bees - and the declining bee population is a huge concern. So please make emergency applications to lift the ban on neonicotinoid pesticides fully transparent to the public.

Right now any decisions are taken behind closed doors - this isn’t good enough. Even your own Environmental Audit Committee has urged you to be more open - saying that emergency use applications warrant greater levels of transparency.

We call on you to publish information about any application to use neonicotinoids prior to any decision being made.

Next step - spread the word

Please will you share the campaign with your friends on social media now? The more people who sign the open letter, the more pressure Liz Truss will feel to make any applications to lift the ban on bee-killing pesticides more transparent.
