Owen Patterson Bans Ecosystem Services


he is said to have forbidden Defra officials from using the phrase “ecosystem services”, a jargon phrase for the benefits bestowed by the natural world.

So what phrase do we use?  Im all for plain English providing it is done from a position of lucidity and clarity not prejudice and ignorance.

Will Civil Servants, Economists and Academics now go around using the code ward – ‘shropshire services’?
