Greens give cautious welcome to revised zero emission plans but say that the devil is in the detail.
"The proposals are a watered-down version of those presented in 2017 and there is a lot of detail that is still missing. Perhaps most disappointingly, the 'zero emission zone' has become a low emission zone. Private cars are unlikely to be restricted at all in the wider 'green zone' before 2025 and even then - as it currently stands - cars emitting up to 75gCO2 per kilometre will be permitted. This is twice the emissions of today's typical plug-in hybrid car. There are some good measures as well, such as the move to EURO6 buses, but there is a lot of detail still to be decided. As always, the devil is in the detail."
