repeal ragwort control (weeds) act

Comment 19th July 2010

Repeal the requirement to control ragwort act (Ragwort Control Act 2003) amending the weeds act 1959.

 

 

 

Why does this matter?

Councils waste millions clearing roadside verges of this stuff every year because of some misplaced concern for the welfare of horses. There is a very low number of horses (if any) killed by ragwort per year and the effort in 'eradicating' ragwort is wasted. You cant eradicate ragwort: it's a natural part of the English countryside and rather pretty.

So

a) This act causes a substantial waste of money.

b) is ineffective (just look at the amount of ragwort round motorway verges and generally scattered around)
