What do you propose to do reduce air pollution in Brent?

Q. Would you agree that car-parking charging in whatever form effectively constitutes a local, environmentally-friendly, progressive tax on people living in Brent?
Q. For Conservative candidates in our ward (or to all if necessary):

Q. You say you want Brent to be a “car-friendly borough”, and you also talk about “creating a greener Brent”. How would you reconcile these conflicting aims?

Q. To all:

Will you support the Friends of the Earth campaign to install solar panels on as many schools as possible?
