UK fails to ban 36 harmful pesticides outlawed for use in EU

The UK has failed to ban 36 pesticides that are not allowed for use in the EU, as campaigners say it is becoming the “toxic poster child of Europe”. Though ministers promised the UK would not water down EU-derived environmental standards after Brexit, there have been multiple instances of divergence since the country left the bloc.

          This decision disregards environmental and public health concerns, and it's disheartening to see such a lack of action in protecting the well-being of both people and the planet.

            Is the UK's Government prioritizing profit they get from the sale of these toxic pesticides over the health and wellness of the people? This is a big shame
