Ségolène Royal,

French minister of environment Ségolène Royal on Saturday presented in a cabinet meeting a series of measures against pollution including incentives for purchasing electric vehicles.

Several French cities have been reeling under a surge in pollution in recent days. As a result, since Tuesday, half of all private cars were ordered off the roads in the Paris region, alternating between a ban on registration plates ending in odd or even numbers.

Ségolène Royal,

The French Minister for the Environment, Ségolène Royale, has said that the current project to build an airport in Notre-Dame-des-Landes in the north of France should be abandoned.

In an interview published this morning, Sunday, the weekly newspaper Journal du Dimanche, she said that it would be better to stop spending money on a project that is unsuited for its stated purpose.
