The leaders will encourage the government to initiate plan to point out the selling of new petrol and diesel vehicles and vans by 2030 in an endeavour to improve air quality.
Khan asserted: “Air pollution is not an isolated problem, it’s a national health crisis. Our country’s filthy air is shortening lives, damaging lungs, and severely impacting on the NHS. That’s why we’re bringing together city leaders from across England and Wales to put this at the top of the agenda. We have to take bold action, but while we’re all doing what we can, we need government support to do even more.
