Government officials from Westminster have finally made put in place a air pollution bill to save over 35,000 people per year. The bill will also save the economy over £20 billion a year, due to the impact to the health service and business. Some Ministers have said if nothing is done and we don’t put this bill in place. Officials also said we could be looking at over 2.5 million cases within the next 16 or so years. This new bill will require the UK to tighten the already in place recommendations by the WHO (World Health Organisation).
When this new bill gets passed, it will mean there will be pollution monitors installed near every school and hospital in the UK.
