Pesticides post-Brexit

Thank you for contacting me about this important issue.
 
While we remain in the EU the UK will continue to meet its obligations under EU law, including restrictions on pesticides.
 
As part of the preparation for exiting the EU, Ministers are considering future arrangements for pesticides. Their highest priority will continue to be the protection of people and the environment and, taking the advice of the independent Expert Committee on Pesticides, they will base these decisions on a careful scientific assessment of the risks.
 
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
