Surrender in the war on knotweed menace: Government gives up fight on hazardous weed
THE Government has been forced to give up the fight against Japanese knotweed in Britain.
After decades trying to tackle the problem the Government now says knotweed is too expensive to destroy.
With annual costs running at £1.5billion, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Minister George Eustice said: “There are no plans to attempt a national eradication because the cost would be prohibitively expensive and likely to be unsuccessful given the widespread distribution of the species.”
Let’s hope they have more success with ISIS?
