Environment Bill: ask your MP to vote for enforceable air quality limits
(18/01/21)

By Larissa Lockwood,  Director of Clean Air, 3 min read

 

 

 

Having left the EU, the UK will now be responsible for setting and enforcing its own air quality targets from 2021 and the Government currently has no plans to set targets until 2022. 

 

In order to change this, the team at Global Action Plan needs your help to put pressure on all MP's to vote for Amendment 2 and New Clause 6 to the Environment Bill. This will set legally binding World Health Organisation air quality limits and a requirement that the Government reports each year on how it is improving air quality.
