Clean Air For Corstorphine

EDM number 1441 in 2017-19, proposed by Christine Jardine on 21/06/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Pollution.

That this House, on Clean Air Day 2018, notes that air pollution from traffic fumes has a devastating impact on health, especially on children and people with existing health problems; regrets the fact that air pollution is responsible for over 2,500 early deaths every year in Scotland and costs the Scottish economy over £1.1 billion annually; recognises that pollution has been linked with heart attacks, strokes and cancers, and can also restrict children’s lung development and the growth of unborn babies; believes that setting up Low Emission Zones in towns and cities can make a real difference in reducing vehicle emissions and improving the health of people growing up in polluted areas; acknowledges research undertaken by Friends of the Earth Scotland which showed that St John's Road in Corstorphine was the second most polluted road in Scotland in 2017; welcomes Edinburgh City Council's consultation into establishing a Low Emission Zone in the city; and congratulates the residents of Corstorphine and Murrayfield who have launched a petition calling for a future Low Emissions Zone to cover their local area.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
