Environment Bill must go ‘further and faster’ on air pollution, says EFRA chair

The chair of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA) committee is preparing to table amendments to the Environment Bill that would strengthen action against air pollution.

Writing in Conservative Home, Tiverton MP Neil Parish has said the bill, which will be debated in the Commons on Wednesday, is “the perfect means” to tackle impacts of air pollution on human health and the environment.
