One of the first acts the Conservative Party has made since leaving the EU has been to give authorisation to farmers in England to use pesticides that are banned within the EU because of the damage they do to wild and honey bee populations.

We believe this is a dangerous precedent that should not be allowed to go ahead.

SIGN THE PETITION: I call on the UK Government to protect our bee populations and to continue the ban on pesticides containing neonicotinoid thiamethoxam that kill our native bees.
