Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

The independent test was undertaken by Millbrook Proving Ground and is derived from a simulated route cycle that represents real-world operating conditions in London. The vehicle tested had been in passenger service for eight months and driven more than 15,000 miles. Please see attached the independent emissions test certificate for the New Bus for London in Appendix 1243.
