Commenting on the announcement of research funding into declining bee populations, Labour MSP and Environment Committee member, Peter Peacock said,

"I warmly welcome this UK wide initiative

"We have been pressing the Scottish Government for some months to take more action to research what has been happening with be populations given their vital importance to our environment and food supply and I am delighted they have responded.

"The Scottish Government need to heed any research findings and act upon them, but there are also a range of things they can do now to help support bee keepers and take actions to minimise the decline using our current understanding of the issues."
