Dickson Supports Calls for Clean Air Strategy for Northern Ireland
East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, has supported calls for a clean air strategy in Northern Ireland to help protect people and the environment.
Mr Dickson commented: “Today (8th October) is Clean Air Day, and many may be surprised to learn that Northern Ireland is the only place in the British Isles that does not have a Clean Air Strategy.
“There is no safe level of pollution, so we must work harder to reduce our exposure to dangerous contaminants. This means funding strategies to improve air quality and reduce emissions. So I am calling on the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to take action on this, and bring Northern Ireland in line with the rest of the UK and Ireland.”
