Motion text

That this House is concerned that 500 horses died from liver damage due to ragwort poisoning in 2001 and that 1000 deaths are predicted in 2002; is also concerned that the toxin in ragwort is poisonous to cattle and sheep as well as humans, so humans may, unwittingly ingest the toxin; notes that under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, landlords are legally obliged to remove ragwort from their land; and calls on the Government to become proactive in preventing the irresponsible spread of ragwort.
