Knocked for six! Now EU threatens our cricket bats – Daily Express, 16 April 2010

April 16th, 2010

Dear Sir

Whilst it is easy to hit out at claims of EU meddling – “Knocked for six! Now EU threatens our cricket bats”, Daily Express, 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

Antonia Mochan
Head of Media
