Conservatives ignored expert advice on bee killing pesticides

Only after a freedom of information request from Friends of the Earth did the government reveal hidden advice on bee killing pesticides from the Health and Safety Executive. They said no to neonic pesticide use but Ministers overruled the safety experts.

Dan Norris who is a former Environment Minister and bee-fan has said he finds the news “deeply troubling”. 

If elected Mr Norris has pledged to make the West of England the bee and pollinator capital of the U.K.
