I would like to present a petition to the House on behalf of the excellent Knockhall Primary School in my constituency, and specifically year 2, who have been doing some excellent work on insecticides. The petitioners declare

“that consideration could be given to banning harmful pesticides” because of the dangers they create for bees and other pollinators, which are an essential part of our environment and play a crucial role in food production.

Following is the full text of the petition

[The petition of a teacher and pupils of Knockhall Primary School,

Declares that consideration could be given to banning harmful pesticides.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to consider banning harmful pesticides.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
