Alan Andrews, Lawyer for ClientEarth, has responded to the IPPR report into air pollution in the midst of ClientEarth’s case against the government over air pollution.
“This report should send a clear message to the UK government that an ambitious and bold Clean Air Act is needed for the whole country. It should phase out diesel across the country and accelerate the shift to zero emission transport. This would help our cities clean up their air and achieve legal limits as soon as possible. The new government must now step up and deal with this public health crisis so that the whole country can breathe cleaner air.”
