The House of Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee has published   Air quality: Fourth Report of Session 2015–16.

This report found that poor air quality is damaging the UK’s environment and harming the nation’s health: emissions have declined significantly over many decades, but not far enough to prevent the early deaths of 40-50,000 people each year from cardiac, respiratory and other diseases linked to air pollution.
