22 February 2018

Neil Parish, Chair of the Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, asked an Urgent Question on air quality in the House of Commons on Thursday 22 February 2018.

This follows yesterday's High Court ruling on the Government's air quality plan.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Dr Thérèse Coffey, responded on behalf of the Government telling the House, "later this year, we will be publishing a comprehensive clean air strategy, which will set out further steps to tackle air pollution more broadly".
