Motion text

That this House notes that poor air quality is currently estimated to reduce the life expectancy of every person in the UK by an average of seven to eight months and impacts particularly on children, the elderly and those in poor health; notes that emissions from demolition and construction sites can be significant contributors to poor air quality in local areas; notes with concern the delay in implementing measures to reduce these emissions at major construction projects, including those for the Olympics; and calls on all major construction projects, including those for the Olympics, to ensure that the most polluting plant used on site is fitted with suitable pollution control technology in line with the best practice guidance on The Control of Dust and Emissions from Construction and Demolition.
