The Cleaner Air for Scotland (CAFS) Governance Group, the group overseeing implementation of the Scottish Government Cleaner Air for Scotland (CAFS) strategy for cutting air pollution and reducing the effect of air pollution on health, has been joined by two new representatives with interests in health, environmental science and regulation, the British Heart Foundation Scotland and Professor Campbell Gemmell, an expert in environmental science, policy and regulation.

The Scottish Government has also outlined further details on financial support that will be made for Low Emission Zones (LEZs). Over 70% of £10.8m funding in 2018-19 will go towards supporting Glasgow’s bus industry to prepare for LEZs, which is enough to support the exhaust retrofitting of over 300 buses to ensure they meet the latest environmental standards.
