3 P-05-748 School Buses for School Children

Supporting documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered correspondence from the WLGA and agreed to write to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport to ask what policy work has been undertaken to explore whether it is possible to strengthen current requirements so that:

 

·         children travelling to and from school on all buses should have a seat and a seat belt;

·         all drivers should have relevant DBS checks;

·         all buses should be fit for purpose.

 

In doing so, Members noted that they fully sympathised with the petition and share the ambition for dedicated, purpose-designed, school buses for school children, they recognised that it may not be possible for this policy ambition to be realised at this time.
