Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Government's plan is a welcome step in the right direction.

I'm pleased to see it includes much of what we are already delivering, including the Ultra Low Emission Zone, which will ensure more than 80% of central London meets Nitrogen Dioxide limits by 2020.

There is clearly potential to bring forward compliance but I cannot do this alone and I am seeking additional support from Government and Europe.
