Zac Goldsmith – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Zac Goldsmith on 2015-10-13.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the National Atmospheric Emission Inventory results for the nitrogen dioxide levels at Pippins Primary School, Colnbrook, what assessment he has made of the potential effect on the health of pupils and staff at that school of the proposals by the Davies Commission to expand Heathrow Airport.

Mr Robert Goodwill

The Government is currently considering the very detailed analysis contained in the Airports Commission’s final report.

Any decision regarding future airport capacity will take into account the Government’s overall plan to improve air quality and its commitment to comply with EU air quality standards.
