Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MP, Angus Brendan MacNeil has welcomed the announcement from the Leader of the Comhairle and the Chair of Education and Children’s Services, that they would be suggesting that the changes to the Home to School Transport Policy be deferred. Last week, the SNP council group raised concerns regarding this policy.
Mr MacNeil said:
“I welcome the action taken by the Leader of the Comhairle and Chair of Education and Children’s Service.
“Many parents will be relived about this short- term reprieve, it is now down to the councillors to overturn this decision and ensure that the safety of children is paramount.
