Boris Johnson is to be quizzed by MPs about his environmental policies and their part in cleaning up London’s air quality on September 10th.
The Mayor and his senior environment advisor, Matthew Pencharz, will appear before the Environmental Audit Committee which is investigating the role of local authorities in tackling pollution.
In April Mr Johnson declined an invitation to give evidence to the investigation, citing diary commitments.
He later agreed to appear alongside Mr Pencharz but urged MPs to quiz UK Ministers and EU officials about their role in tackling poor air quality.
In a letter to committee chair Joan Walley, the Mayor said “air quality is a national issue” and insisted the committee will need to hear evidence “from the widest possible number of stakeholders” if it’s to have a full understanding of the issue.
The Mayor will appear for around 45 minutes from 2.15pm on September 10th.
