unstar this property answer text <p>(a) Government support has included £250 million, since 2017 alone, to Greater Manchester for cleaner better transport to help improve air quality. Manchester authorities, including Salford, are working together to develop a Clean Air Plan for Manchester. The Government is committed to providing the required financial and technical support to local authorities to enable delivery of their air quality plans. We are working closely with Greater Manchester to reduce air pollution and have committed £495 million for local authorities to implement and mitigate their plans. We will be able to consider Greater Manchester’s funding requirement once their final plan is received; it was due in December 2018, but will not be provided until March 2019.</p><p> </p><p>(b) The UK continues to meet all current international air quality limits, except for Nitrogen Dioxide Concentrations (NO2). In July 2017, we published the NO2 Plan, backed by £3.5 billion of funding, which sets out the steps we are taking to reduce NO2 concentrations in the shortest possible time, thus complying with NO2 limits as soon as possible. We are working intensively with local authorities, to identify measures to swiftly bring forward compliance, and support them with guidance and funding. This includes major cities outside the Capital which are exceeding NO2 limits, including Greater Manchester Authorities, such as Salford. Additionally, we published our new world leading Clean Air Strategy on 14 January 2019, which has been welcomed by the World Health Organisation as “an example for the rest of the world to follow”.</p>
