Report Number: 12395 Date: 19/11/2014

Title: Air Pollution Ruling Welcomed (2 of 3)

Of interest to: Scotland

Script details:
There’s support for a decision which could force the government to tackle dangerous air pollution in Scotland as soon as possible.

The European Court of Justice earlier ruled the UK’s Supreme Court can order ministers to swiftly meet EU limits on nitrogen dioxide.

Previous efforts to do so have been delayed, with the targets initially set to be met by 2010.

More than two thousand Scottish adult deaths in that year were attributable to poor air quality.

Catherine Stihler, Scottish Labour MEP, says pollution can lead to conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease:
