  • By Gemma Kappala-R...

Commenting on the Mayor’s announcement on air quality, Cllr Julian Bell, Chair of London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee, said: 

“London Councils has long been calling for action on air quality in the capital – including expansion of the Ultra-Low Emission Zone and the introduction of a diesel scrappage scheme – so today’s announcement is most welcome. 
“While the boroughs have been working hard to minimise the impact of pollution, they cannot tackle the issue alone. Improving air quality requires a collaborative effort and we look forward to working with the Mayor to bring about a healthier future for London.”
