Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Clean Air Zones: West Midlands (8 May 2018)
Therese Coffey: The Government assessed the impacts of charging in clean air zones on businesses nationally in the 2016 impact assessment. This did not look at the impacts on Birmingham or the West Midlands in isolation. The UK plan for tackling roadside nitrogen dioxide concentrations is clear that local authorities must conduct feasibility studies with robust economic impact assessments, following the...
