Gaelic Written Answer, 02/04/13 [S]

Written Answer given in response to John Finnie's (Ind) question asking the Scottish Government what (a) support and (b) advice it gives to local authorities on facilitating travel for pupils who want to attend primary and secondary Gaelic medium school.

The Minister for Learning, Alasdair Allan, replied that transportation to schools for pupils is a matter for the local authorities, and the Scottish Government has no locus to intervene. However, some local authorities do include an element for transportation in their bids from the Gaelic Specific Grant Scheme under the Gaelic Education (Scotland) Regulations 1986.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 2 April 2013 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
