Statement on Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone

A spokesperson for the Mayor of Greater Manchester said: 

"Today the Mayor of Greater Manchester has had a constructive meeting with the Environment Secretary following the decision of Greater Manchester Councils to refer the current Clean Air Zone back to the Government. 

The Mayor relayed his view, and that of the ten council leaders, that major changes are needed to the scheme to protect businesses and jobs in light of the new emerging evidence about problems in the vehicle market. 

The Secretary of State agreed to meet again with the Mayor in the next 7-10 days to agree a way forward."
