The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee is now accepting written submissions for its inquiry into improving air quality.

MPs from four select committees have launched the joint inquiry to scrutinise cross-government plans to tackle pollution hotspots, and are now calling for evidence on how effective these are.

Specific issues on which written submissions are requested include how effectively government policies take into account the health and environmental impacts of poor air quality, whether other nations or cities are taking action that the UK can learn from, and how those responsible for delivering national plans locally can be supported and challenged. 

Organisations, individuals from the transport sector and members of the public can all supply written submissions before a 5pm deadline on Thursday 9 November.
