The Government is fully committed to improving air quality and we published our new Clean Air Strategy this month, which has been praised by the World Health Organisation as ‘an example for the rest of the world to follow’.

We have already put into statute targets for 2030 and have also made the necessary technical amendments through statutory instruments for continuity of legislation for after leaving the EU.
