Taking our air quality seriously?

The House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee was taking evidence today from the Environment Agency, Health and Safety Executive along with the DECC. Mr Tony Grayling, Head of Climate Change and Communities, Environment Agency stated that the EA will 'take air quality very seriously'. This does not seem to be the case according to the FoI request received today.... without any testing or monitoring, how will the EA know what the quality of the air is? They don't currently do it at other sites around West Sussex.
