EU takes six member states to court over air quality

EU takes six member states to court over air quality

Brussels, 17 May 2018 (MIA) - The European Union is taking six member states to court for exposing their citizens to too much air pollution, AP reported.

The European Commission on Thursday referred France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania and Britain to the EU’s highest Court of Justice, saying they failed to respect air quality limits and did not take appropriate action in time.

The Commission also warned Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and Britain for disregarding car approval rules.

Bas Eickhout of the Greens/EFA group in the European parliament said that “it is shameful that some of Europe’s wealthiest countries are dragging their heels on protecting their citizens’ health.” ba/14:52
