Mull will be poisoned by use of insecticide
Sir, It is sad that the plants at Pennyghael on the Isle of Mull, which were once the source of medicine and healing for kings and the people of Scotland (http:// www. scotclans.com/ the- beaton- doctors-of-mull/), could now be the source of illness and disease to the wildlife and the community of the island and its visitors.
Tilhill Forestry is planting trees impregnated with a neonicotinoid insecticide to provide toilet rolls for China.
What an indictment of our society.
