who was giving evidence to the Commons Public Accounts Committee, played down fears food production could be affected, arguing bees were "one of many" crop pollinators"

Well yes, but as I pointed out in another thread, there are some crops which are exlusively, or mainly pollinated by bees, and if bees were not around to do the pollinating we wouldn't have a crop worth growing commercially.

Admitting that the problem hasn't been given enough priority is fine, but going on to say that extra money was being 'ploughed in' to solve the crisis whern all that's being ploughed in is a measly extra £500,000 a year is quite ludicrous. That kind of money isn't going to solve the crisis.
