Rachael Maskell MP is committed to protecting the bees. Rachael is against proposed plans to temporary lift a ban on bee-harming pesticides.
The ban was voted for by European governments in 2013 after numerous scientific studies found that certain pesticides (Neonicotinoids) were particularly harmful to bees. Since then even more studies have supported the need for this ban.
Bees play an important role in the UK crop production, for instance, 85% of the UK’s apple crops and 45% of our strawberry crop relies on bees to grow.
