To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to improve air quality in urban areas.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 16 January 2019
The Cleaner Air for Scotland strategy sets out a series of actions for Government, Transport Scotland, local authorities and others to further reduce air pollution across Scotland. Financial and other support is provided to local authorities to assist them with monitoring and implementing local actions to improve air quality. In November I announced that Professor Campbell Gemmell will chair an independent review of Scotland’s air quality strategy, to assess progress and make recommendations for future priorities.
