Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are five sub-regional air quality cluster groups consisting of all the London boroughs in that region: East, North, West, South and Central. There is also an overarching Air Quality Steering Group comprising the GLA, London Councils, Transport for London, the Environment Agency and the five chairs of the cluster groups. The Steering Group and cluster groups meet roughly on a quarterly basis. The City of London Corporation currently chairs the Steering Group and holds copies of agendas, minutes and other papers.
