I am encouraged by the progress that has already been made to reduce air pollution since 2010. Emissions of nitrogen oxides have decreased by 33 per cent and currently sit at their lowest level since records began. However, there is of course more work to be done.
I am pleased with the measures the Government have put in place to help pubs. The Chancellor’s Winter Economy Plan establishes much of the support which will allow pubs to tackle the challenges lying ahead.
I share the widespread concern about the impact of coronavirus on young people’s mental health. Specifically, being separated from their peers for such a long period presents serious dangers to mental health, as well as hampering the social development of our young people.
