Pesticides Bill on its way

THE Pesticides Bill cleared the Lords last night and now returns to the Commons for peers amendments to be approved.

Ministers can currently only release information on those pesticides approved since 1995, or older ones that have been reviewed since then.

Ben Bradshaws Bill (Lab, Exeter) would give the Government power to release information on all pesticides without having to wait for these reviews.
