I refer to theSince considering this petition, the County Council has considered a number of options relating to concessionary travel for scholars who are not entitled to free home to school transport. I am pleased to inform you that we have given careful consideration to the matter of travel concessions for students aged 16-18 within the context of our heavily constrained budgets. We will be asking Members of the Environment, Highways and Waste Cabinet Committee to consider a report on this matter on 13 December. The report is published at least 5 clear working days before the Committee meets, i.e. by 5 December and can be viewed on our website:
