Millions of older people at risk from toxic air around their homes – Luke Pollard responds

Luke Pollard MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment Secretary, responding to a report showing that millions of older people are at risk from toxic air around their homes, said:

“Labour tried to put the World Health Organisation targets for air quality into law, but the Tories voted against it.

“The Conservatives’ unwillingness to address the high levels of air pollution are putting some of the most vulnerable people’s health at risk. The Government must show urgency towards tackling the climate crisis.”
