Answered By: 
The Mayor

The European Commission has granted the UK a conditional time extension for London for the PM10 daily limit value. However, the Commission requires the Government to adjust its plan for London by 11 June so that it includes short-term measures to reduce the risk of the limit value being exceeded. This adjusted action plan must be communicated to the Commission by 30 November 2011 at the latest. The GLA is working with the Government on the necessary adjustments to the plan.
