EU bat woe – Daily Star, 16 April 2010

Dear Sir

Whilst it is easy to hit out at claims of Eurocrats threatening the future of the English cricket bat industry – “EU bat woe, Daily Star, 16 April 2010 – scratch below the surface and one discovers the ban on methyl bromide stems from a United Nations agreement to protect the environment ¬†from damaging ozone depleting substances.¬† This is something the UK, like every other UN member, would be doing whether it was an EU member or not.

Yours sincerely
