Clean Air Zones And Emissions

EDM number 58 in 2016-17, proposed by Tom Brake on 23/05/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Environmental protection, Oil, petrol and natural gas, Pollution and Roads.

That this House believes that air pollution from burning diesel has a significant impact on health in the UK, causing thousands of premature deaths and reducing quality of life for many more; acknowledges that forthcoming legislation to tackle emissions, such as Clean Air Zones proposed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, needs to look at all sources of diesel emissions; notes that auxiliary engines, such as transport refrigeration units, can emit many times more nitrogen oxides and particulate matter than a vehicle's primary engine; and calls for legislation to reflect this in order to protect people's health and help promote the uptake of clean alternatives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
