An Expiry Date On Dirty Cars Is Good, But Air Pollution Means We Need Real Action Before 2040

Yet again the government is trying to hide behind a headline, and dodge its responsibility for tackling illegal air pollution in our towns and cities. Our toxic air is stunting our children's lung growth right now; it is sending vulnerable people to hospital and causing suffering up and down the country. We cannot wait nearly a quarter of a century for a solution. It needs strong government action to fix this crisis right now.
