The current Mayor has himself admitted that some 4,300 premature deaths in London in 2008 were attributable to long-term exposure to dangerous airborne particles.

Rather than deal with this problem at source, the current Mayor is trying to sweep this problem under the carpet. We think there is alternative - and London needs that alternative urgently.

Green Party Mayoral candidate Jenny Jones said: "Air pollution is now the second biggest killer in the capital and is rapidly emerging as the number one public health issue for Londoners.

"We simply cannot go on as we are. It is a scandal that the response of our current Conservative mayor has been to try and hide the problem rather than take steps to deal with its causes.

"By electing more Green Assembly Members this year, London can help ensure that this crucial issue is given the attention it needs by City Hall."

Produced and promoted by Martin Bleach on behalf of Jenny Jones and London Green Party candidates, all at Development House, 56-64 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4LT.
