A number of constituents have expressed concern about air quality in the Morden Town centre, especially where the numerous buses wait immediately outside the Morden Underground Station. While local residents value the excellent connectivity, most of the buses are not the cleaner buses, and residents would like to know if there is a timetable for bringing the cleanest buses onto the routes that pass through Morden Town Centre?
With the imminent introduction of the Zero-Emission Capable Taxis (available for purchase from the end of 2017) when will Londoners see noticeable results in reducing pollution from Black Cabs? With only a voluntary scrappage scheme and some taxis potentially staying on the roads until 2032 (if purchased just before the new ZEC taxis come in), what does air modelling show in terms of when improvements will be noticeable?
In your response to my question 2017/3041 you stated that none of the Grade I and Grade II listed assets in the GLA Group portfolio have conservation management plans. What plans if any do you have to rectify this situation so that historic London assets under your control are not left to degrade?
Your draft Environment Strategy states that you will "tender for the delivery of an energy supply company aiming to offer fairer energy bills to Londoners as soon as possible". Can you give me a timeline for this tender and assure me that it will not begin until after the Environment Strategy consultation process has concluded?
Your draft Environment Strategy states that you will "tender for the delivery of an energy supply company aiming to offer fairer energy bills to Londoners as soon as possible", which I understand is a 'white label' option. Why are you not consulting Londoners on a fully licensed energy company option after you committed to this at Mayor's Question Time on 22 June 2016?
Thank you for your answer to my question 2017/3044 in which you said that the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) will issue a statement when it has considered the evidence of the possible health effects of exposure to dust within the London Underground system. Do you have any information on the possible timing of this statement?
In answer to my question 2017/2190 you said "I will set out my plans for Energy for Londoners in the draft London Environment Strategy and will publish the options appraisal with the Strategy as part of the evidence base". Why didn't you release this when you published your draft Environment Strategy in August 2017?
Are you concerned that the National Park City project could be used for further privatisation of public space, corporate sponsorship of community assets or to promote development which 'appear' green but in fact use greenery to cover up less environmentally beneficial construction, as we witnessed with the Garden Bridge fiasco.
In your opinion, what contribution does ozone make to climate change and global warming? Do you understand that, unlike carbon dioxide, ozone's absorption band in the infra-red spectrum is unsaturated, meaning an increase in tropospheric ozone will have a far greater impact on infra-red absorption than carbon dioxide?
