Petition We call on DEFRA, to reinstate the ban on the use of metaldehyde slug pellets.
The government has conceded that its decision making process was flawed and has overturned the ban on metaldehyde slug pellets. We now call on the government to urgently follow the correct decision making process to ensure a ban on the use of metaldehyde pellets is put in place as soon as possible.
In December 2018 DEFRA ruled to withdraw from the market all products containing metaldehyde with immediate effect with their use on farms banned from 2020.
In July 2019 the government conceded that its decision-making process had been flawed and the decision was withdrawn.
