Other aspects covered in the debate included the spread of the Varroa mite and the consequences of a declining bee population on the pollination of crops and fruit.

In the House of Lords Members may table questions for debate, usually up to two hours and a half, on a specific issue or matter of concern. A minister responds on behalf of the Government.
