Answered By: 
The Mayor

My focus is on taking action in London to improve air quality to protect human health. I have set out an ambitious Air Quality Strategy containing both Londonwide and targeted local measures to do this. Reporting to the European Commission is a matter for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
