In response to the announcement by the Mayor of London that the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be expanded across all London boroughs from 29 August 2023, British Safety Council Chairman, Peter McGettrick said:

“The expansion of ULEZ is a welcome development, which will improve the air quality for many millions of people living and working across London, and the inclusion of the scrappage scheme will support businesses and residents alike either to update their vehicles or use public transport.

“4,000 people die every year in London due to air pollution, and many people’s jobs mean they have to work outside and breathe dangerous fumes. We need employers, businesses and others in London to get behind this change and help bring down the shocking death toll that still exists.”
