Answered By: 
The Mayor

As part of the work to support the revision of the Mayor's Air Quality Strategy, the GLA has commissioned a review of research on the health impacts of air pollution. The aim is to get a greater understanding of the nature of the health effects of poor air quality in London and where the impacts are greatest. This will assist in developing policies for the Strategy that are better targeted at improving health, and will also help the GLA to provide advice to boroughs and other stakeholders. This study will be published on the GLA website at the same time that the draft Air Quality Strategy is published for consultation with the London Assembly and Functional Bodies.
