Draft air pollution plan 'toothless and woefully inadequate' - Sadiq Khan

Sadiq Khan
Reuters

Sadiq Khan has attacked the government's draft air pollution plan, which has been released today, calling it "toothless and woefully inadequate".

The mayor called air pollution "the public health emergency of our generation" but said "the proposals don't go nearly far enough to meet the scale of the challenge."

"This is a weak plan that lacks any sense of urgency. That means thousands of people will continue to die prematurely and unnecessarily, and many more children having to live with long-term health problems," he said.
