Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 4 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason it did not participate in the recent case in the High Court of Justice between ClientEarth (No.2) and the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 18 November 2016

The Scottish Government is committed to promoting good air quality and meeting our EU obligations. The Scottish Government did not participate in the recent High Court case as the Scottish Government was not identified as a defendant by ClientEarth.
