Answered By: 
The Mayor

Air pollution and smog are monitored at a national level by the Met Office. Air quality information is featured on the GLA website, with side bar alerts on medium and high pollution days, as well as on the Met Office and Defra's UK-AIR websites.

I want to ensure that information and guidance on air quality in London is made as widely available to the public as is possible so I have asked TfL to look into doing as you suggest.
