Clive Efford - A Strong Voice for Eltham and Plumstead

help the bees

bee.jpgThe Government has lifted the EU ban on neonicotinoid pesticides, ignoring scientific research which has linked the pesticides to huge losses in the UK's bee population. 

By lifting the ban, the government is caving in to short-term commercial pressures from the NFU and pesticide manufacturers at the expense of the bee population in the UK and therefore the future of British farming.

Sign here to demand that the Government protect our bees by reinstating the ban immediately.

I am very pleased you are also fighting this decision by the government that disregards all the scientific evidence.
