To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, whether his Department plans to update the Clean Air Strategy in light of the (a) Environment Act, (b) Net Zero Strategy and (c) Transport Decarbonisation Strategy.
23 November 2021
We do not at present plan to update the Clean Air Strategy. The Environment Act 2021 will deliver key parts of the Clean Air Strategy and we continue to work across Government to strengthen our collective action on air quality, including through the measures set out in the Net Zero Strategy and the Transport Decarbonisation strategy. The air quality co-benefits of meeting the sixth Carbon Budget and the Net Zero Strategy are estimated at about £35 billion over 2020-2050.
