Responding to the Mayor of London’s action plan to battle toxic air, Labour’s London Assembly Environment Spokesperson, Leonie Cooper AM, said:
“Poor air quality has plagued some of London’s most vulnerable communities including school children and those in deprived areas.
“We’ve be crying out for an ambitious plan to tackle air pollution in London. Tough measures, such as the £10 T-charge and the extension of the Ultra Low Emission Zone, could go a long way to combating this silent killer.
“The Mayor is playing his part, now government must too by taking on board calls for a diesel scrappage scheme and a new Clear Air Act fit for the 21st Century.”
