Last quote by James Thornton

The UK government's stubborn failure to tackle illegal and harmful levels of pollution in this country means that we have no choice but to take legal action. We need clarity from the government and for that we've been forced to go back to court.feedback

James Thornton quotes

May 07 2017 - Pollution

The plan was so bad it was illegal and so the government was ordered to redo it and publish in April 2017.feedback

May 06 2017 - Pollution

The more we study this appalling plan, the more unsatisfactory it gets. We need to ask ourselves at what point will the government take this public health emergency seriously enough to start protecting our health and our children's futures, instead of the car companies.feedback

May 06 2017 - Pollution

The government must, and will be forced to, obey its own laws to protect our health and give us safe and cleaner air to breathe.feedback

May 06 2017 - Pollution

This latest plan is even worse than the previous effort, which has already been ruled illegal by the high court. The government should be ashamed of itself. It has dragged its heels for seven years while we choke on illegal and poisonous air; it's been hauled through the supreme and high courts and had to be forced by a judge to publish this delayed plan.feedback

Apr 25 2017

This is a public health issue and not a political issue. Urgent action is required to protect people's health from the illegal and poisonous air that we are forced to breathe in the UK. This is a matter for the court to decide once the government has made its arguments because it is the government which has not met, and instead seeks to extend, the court's deadline for the clean air plan, to clean up our air.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Pollution

Whichever party ends up in power after 8 June will need this air quality plan to begin finally to tackle our illegal levels of pollution and prevent further illness and early deaths from poisonous toxins in the air we breathe. The government has had five months to draft this plan and it should be published.feedback

Apr 22 2017 - Pollution

Our court case forced the government to come up with new plans to bring down illegal levels of air pollution across the country. Those plans must include a national network of clean air zones to keep the dirtiest diesel vehicles out of pollution hotspots, if we are to stand any chance of dealing with this public health crisis.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Pollution

We are urgently considering the government's application to delay the publication of the draft air quality plan which was received on Friday evening, less than one working day before the plans are due. It is far from acceptable that ministers have left this to the very last minute. The government proposes to delay the publication of the air quality plan despite the clear public health risk caused by illegal air quality. These plans are essential to safeguard public health and they should be put in place without delay.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Pollution

This is not a political issue but a public health issue. Whichever party is in power, the British public need to see an air quality plan which relies on good scientific evidence and which ensures that people no longer have to breathe toxic air and suffer the grave consequences to their health as a result.feedback

Apr 05 2017

The prime minister must get on the side of ordinary car drivers and stand up to the car industry by committing to a programme of mandatory vehicle recall, compensation, random on-road testing and a clean-car label based on real-world emissions.feedback
