Clean Air Commission
Proposal for a high level Clean Air Commission
60 Years on from the great Clean Air Act of 1956
The Clean Air Alliance, founded following an initiative by Environmental Protection UK, has called for a major new initiative to tackle the health problems resulting from air pollution.
In a letter to Andrea Leadsom, the new Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Dan Byles, the Chairman of the Clean Air Alliance, said,
“We are today (18 July) proposing to you and your colleagues the establishment of a high level Clean Air Commission to create a new momentum for the urgently needed action to tackle air pollution in our cities and countryside and to clean up the air we all breathe . . . . . . . ”
