Answered By: 
The Mayor

It is estimated that diesel vehicles are responsible for around 90 per cent of road based transport emissions. In addition to my own efforts to tackle these emissions through an Ultra Low Emission Zone, I have also asked Government to amend existing fiscal incentives and to consider a diesel scrappage scheme.
