Question

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will ring-fence a proportion of the revenue from Vehicle Excise Duty for projects to improve air quality.

Answer (Robert Jenrick)

The Government is committed to tackling air pollution. We have invested over £3.5 billion since 2010 to improve air quality and deliver cleaner transport.

From 2020, all funds raised through Vehicle Excise Duty in England will be ring-fenced to form a National Roads Fund, which will be reinvested into the road network. We expect some of this investment to support environmental outcomes across the road network, which includes improving air quality.
