star this property answer text <p>The UK and Brazil have a close dialogue on issues of mutual interest and concern, both bilaterally and globally, including on climate and the environment. We are aware of a number of proposals reported during the recent election period. The new Brazilian President takes office on 1 January 2019. It is for the Government of the day to formulate its own policies and it would be inappropriate to speculate at this stage on the decisions that the new Government may make. Climate and environment issues form an important part of our work with Brazil and we look forward to continuing our dialogue on these.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We always use the best available science when making decisions on pesticides, and risks to pollinators are a key consideration. Pesticides that carry unacceptable risks to pollinators should not be authorised.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2013, the use of three neonicotinoids (clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam) has been prohibited on a number of crops, such as oilseed rape, that are deemed attractive to bees. Since that time, the evidence on risks to pollinators has continued to develop and includes several field studies that indicate risks from exposure to pollen and nectar from treated crops. Last year, the UK Expert Committee on Pesticides confirmed that the evidence supported the existing restrictions. The Committee also noted the potential for neonicotinoids used on non-flowering crops to persist in soil and to be taken up by following flowering crops or by weeds.</p><p> </p><p>On the basis of this assessment, the Government announced its support for further restrictions on neonicotinoid pesticides. In April 2018, the UK voted in favour of European Commission proposals that will see a ban on any outdoor use of these three neonicotinoids from December 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Unless the scientific evidence changes, the Government will maintain these increased restrictions after leaving the EU.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is aware of the issue of illegal hare coursing and the considerable concern it can cause to rural communities. We recognise that local police forces are taking steps to address hare coursing and associated crimes and that this is an operational matter for the police. The role of locally elected Police and Crime Commissioners is to hold their forces to account, including on how they tackle the crimes that matter most to residents and businesses. The National Wildlife Crime Unit includes hare coursing as one of its priorities. In addition, the six police forces across the East of England have come together and are deploying Operation Galileo to tackle hare coursing.</p> more like this
