Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine is the responsible body for authorisation of glyphosate to the market including providing general use guidelines.
Local authorities are entirely independent corporate entities having full responsibility under law for the performance of their functions. Local authorities perform functions across a wide range of sectors which come within the remit of a number of different Departments and central agencies.
My Department has no role in advising local authorities on their usage of glyphosate.
