To Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
- Voting to extend the EU ban on bee-killing pesticides (neonicotinoids) to cover all kinds of crops
- Voting to make the EU ban on neonicotinoids permanent
- Keeping the ban in place after we leave the EU
Why is this important?
Bees pollinate three quarters of the world’s crops - apples, strawberries, onions, carrots and many many more of our fruit and veg. We wouldn’t last long without them.
Right now there's a temporary ban on bee-killing pesticides, called neonicotinoids, across Europe. Over the next few months Environment Secretary Michael Gove has a chance to protect our bees for good by voting to extend the ban to take more of these pesticides of our fields, and by voting to make the ban permanent.
Michael Gove has been talking the talk on how he would like a ‘Green Brexit’ and protect our environment and our bees, but up until now those words have turned into little action. Our bees are too important to lose, Michael Gove and the UK government must do all they can to protect them.
