Asked Of: 
The Mayor


In evidence to a Parliamentary Select Committee in June 2011 you state that 'A Euro 5 car, for example, emits around five times as much direct NO2 as a fifteen year old car.'' Can you explain why you agreed to impose the taxi age limit, based upon the outdated modeling of taxi pollution reduction which supported your Air Quality Strategy, when you knew that the emission factors would need to be updated?
