Petition Find time to take the Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill through the House of Commons
This Bill has been agreed by the House of Lords with cross-party support and we want the Government to find time to take it through the House of Commons, so that it can become law: https://bills.parliament.uk/bills/3161
This Bill contains provisions to ensure the human right to breathe clean air and prevent the deaths of children and other vulnerable people, whilst helping to protect the environment and mitigate climate change.
The current law does not adequately do this. This petition calls on the Government to find time to take the Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill (also known as Ella's law in memory of Ella Kissi-Debrah) through the House of Commons, as a measure to achieve clean air, and prevent future deaths, with around 38,000 people dying from air pollution yearly.
