GSD looks into air quality claims

The GSD said yesterday it was looking further into the matter of the poor air quality being experienced in Gibraltar, as revealed by the World Health Organisation.

GSD Shadow Minister for the Environment, Trevor Hammond said: “It is deeply concerning that Gibraltar should not only feature in this report but should be bottom of the list compared with the worst towns in the United Kingdom.”

“We are looking at the available information further and will be issuing a more comprehensive statement next week but there is no question how serious this matter can be, as poor air quality has a direct link with incidence of lung disease and allergies.”

The Gibraltar Government has yet to react to the claims.
