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.

This is something I feel so very strongly about. It’s vital to get the ban back urgently. We need bees for so many things.

the governments action and suppression of facts is unacceptable and contravenes everything David Cameron purports to support!

The Government should be guided by the scientific research and reinstate the ban on neonicotinoid pesticides to protect the bee population.

Why are they trying to hide the results from us the public as everyone know it is wrong to kill bees?

Thank you for starting this petition, Clive.

Your very positive response to this proposed madness is a great relief to all of us who are sane enough to understand the importance of our bees. We very much hope for your success on this very crucial issue. Thank you.

I support this petition wholeheartedly. Bees and all insect life are too important to ecology and the environment to allow Neonicotinoids to once more be used on the land.
