Air Pollution

EDM number 1087 in 1994-95, proposed by Joan Ruddock on 04/05/1995.

That this House notes with considerable alarm that while the Government has acknowledged the current high levels of ozone and nitrogen dioxide, no specific health advice about ozone has been issued to vulnerable groups including those with asthma or breathing problems; notes that World Health Organisation guidelines for ground ozone levels have been breached at more than half of Britain's 32 monitoring sites in the last 48 hours; further notes that Britain has fewer sites for monitoring nitrogen oxides than any other country in Europe, and that many sites, contrary to European law, are situated away from busy streets; and calls on the Government to make good its commitment to improve air quality by accepting Labour's amendment to the Environment Bill which will establish a national strategy to improve air quality, including the creation of air quality standards and local air quality management areas.

This motion has been signed by a total of 69 MPs.
