The Implementation of the EU Pesticides Legislation

This consultation was on how the EU Sustainable Use Directive should be enshrined in UK regulation.  The CLA argues for no gold-plating of UK regulation, no arbitrary pesticide reduction targets, the ability to continue to aerial spray and the need to use plant protection products in areas to which the public have access.  The CLA also argues against further prior-notification of spraying, and against increasing the burden of sprayer testing.
