UK and EU experts have identified no safety concerns which would preclude the continuing use of glyphosate and so the Government supports its continued approval by the EU. An EU decision will be binding on the UK while we are still within the EU.
Leaving the EU means we will have the opportunity to consider carefully how future policies can best be tailored to the needs of the UK. Decision-making on the use of pesticides after the UK leaves the EU will be based on careful scientific assessment of the risks. Our highest priority will continue to be the protection of people and the environment.
