In response to my question 2427/2010 you stated that you were confident that the EU daily limit value for PM10 will be met throughout Greater London in 2011 without referring specifically to the streets I mentioned. What is the precise basis for your statement as far as Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street are concerned?

Modelling for the draft Air Quality Strategy showed that there may be some areas near the busiest roads in central London where the margin between modelled concentrations and the limit value are very small and these areas would benefit from the local measures and the wider policies in the strategy. Details of these priority locations are in chapter 2 of the draft Strategy and Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street were not identified. However, as localised air quality varies depending on local circumstances, these priority locations will be kept under review to ensure compliance with the EU limit values by 2011. *
