The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor received 7 August 2013

I am committed to improving air quality in London and believe new low emission vehicles will play a central role in reducing emissions.

Significant progress has already been made with the delivery of 1,300 electric vehicle charge points, the hybrid New Bus for London and, the announcement of my vision for an Ultra-Low Emission Zone in central London by 2020.

My officers are now preparing a new low emission vehicle strategy to complement the broader feasibility study for the Ultra-Low Emission Zone, reporting back to me by the end of the year.
