Last quote by James Thornton on Pollution

We have been looking at the fine detail of the draft air quality plans published by the government. We have found some major flaws. The law requires the final plan to bring air pollution down to legal levels in the shortest time possible. These flaws seriously jeopardise that timetable. These are plans for more plans, what we need are plans for action.feedback

Our court case forced the government to come up with new plans to bring down illegal levels of air pollution across the country. Those plans must include a national network of clean air zones to keep the dirtiest diesel vehicles out of pollution hot spots, if we are to stand any chance of dealing with this public health crisis.feedback

We are urgently considering the Government's application to delay the publication of the draft Air Quality Plan which was received on Friday evening, less than one working day before the plans are due. It is far from acceptable that ministers have left this to the very last minute. The Government proposes to delay the publication of the Air Quality Plan despite the clear public health risk caused by illegal air quality. These plans are essential to safeguard public health and they should be put in place without delay.feedback

New plans were ordered by the High Court as a result of our case last year. This is not a political issue but a public health issue. Whichever party is in power, the British public need to see an air quality plan which relies on good scientific evidence and which ensures that people no longer have to breathe toxic air and suffer the grave consequences to their health as a result.feedback

Whichever party ends up in power after the June 8 will need this air quality plan to begin finally to tackle our illegal levels of pollution and prevent further illness and early deaths from poisonous toxins in the air we breathe. The Government has had five months to draft this plan and it should be published.feedback
