Maybe the courts could order the issue of free anti-pollution masks, pending any government ‘clean-up’ action.
The UK government may face legal action after seeking to delay publishing its plan to tackle air pollution until after the general election, says BBC News.
The courts had given ministers until 16:00 on Monday to set out draft measures to combat illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution. A 2016 court ruling said existing measures proposed by the government did not meet the requirements of law.
The general election is scheduled to take place on 8 June.
