Answer for PM10 limit value

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Every year the Government submits a report to the Commission on air quality compliance taking into account the requirements of the EU Air Quality Directive.

The 2009 report was published in September 2010 and it is expected that the report for 2010 will be published later this year once all monitoring data has been checked. Only once that report has been published, will I be in a position to fully know whether or not the EU daily limit value for PM10 was breached in 2010.
