MP’s recently announced that schools could benefit from having a filtration system fitted.
Quoting data that suggests “tens of thousands” of deaths are triggered by nitrogen dioxide and airborne particulate pollution, the environmental audit committee also wants existing schools near busy roads to be told to install air filtration systems to reduce exposure to the black stuff pumped out by the traffic.
Joan Walley MP, who chaired the committee, said: “Well over a thousand schools around the country are 150 metres away from major roads. Protecting children and vulnerable people in the worst affected areas must be made a priority by Government and Local Authorities. Ministers must pluck up the political courage to take the potentially unpopular decisions necessary to get the most polluting vehicles off the road and encourage more people to walk, cycle or take public transport.”
