    Minister Fazekas' office: +36-1-795-3723
    Ministry of Rural Development: +36-1-795-2000
    Hungary's EU office in Brussels: +32 22341200.

    Here are some tips on what to say -- remember to be polite and respectful when you call. And keep trying if you don't get through first time, our calls often keep the phone lines engaged which is a good thing.
    • I have heard Minister Fazekas has tabled an amendment that would weaken this proposal. I strongly oppose those amendments -- they would make Minister Fazekas and Hungary the spoiler of this necessary measure that has widespread public support.
    • This proposal is vital if we want to protect our bees who pollinate roughly two-thirds of food crops with a massive value to our agricultural industry.
    • The European Food Safety Agency – one of Europe’s leading scientific bodies – says these pesticides are an unacceptable risk to bees.
    • European law is clear – any chemicals that pose a risk to animal, insect or human health must be banned, until such time as they are proven to be safe.
