That this House notes that over 40,000 people die prematurely each year as a result of poor air quality in the UK, and this can be particularly attributed to vehicle emissions, including levels of nitrogen dioxide, and also to other particulates; further notes that the UK has been taken to court four times for failing to address the UK's poor air quality, that it is now time to ensure that there is effective air quality monitoring across all areas of the UK, in particular areas of high levels of air pollution and congestion, as well as near schools; and believes that the Government must respond by establishing clean air zones in all areas of the UK, and facilitate appropriate resourcing to oversee the retrofitting of all buses and coaches, setting out a clear timeline for all vehicles to be replaced by ultra-low emission vehicles, as well as supporting local authorities to manage congestion, creating green lungs in urban spaces and undertaking initiatives like tree planting to mitigate against poor air quality.
