Clean Air for Children

25th October 2018

Philip Dunne MP is calling on the government to take robust action to protect children from the harmful effects of air pollution.

Mr Dunne met the Clean Air Parents’ Network this week in the House of Commons, who are calling for a comprehensive air quality audit of schools, nurseries and playgrounds, as well as traffic exclusion zones to help limit children’s exposure to air pollution. The campaign also supports more walking and cycling to and from school.

Mr Dunne said: “Despite recent progress in cutting pollution, air pollution can still be a significant health risk, particularly for children.

It is vital the government take robust action to protect children from air pollution, in particular in areas of poor air quality, and I hope they will consider carefully what further steps can be taken to ensure air quality improves around schools, playgrounds and nurseries.”
