School Bus Safety Debate, 04/11/14 [S]

Debate in the Scottish Parliament on 4 November 2014 on the importance of school bus safety around Scotland. The debate was introduced by Stewart Stevenson (SNP).

The motion was debated without any question being put:

That the Parliament notes the importance of school bus safety around Scotland and what it considers the important work of Ron Beaty of Gardenstown, whom it congratulates for his efforts on this issue, specifically in relation to bus safety signs and bus visibility; considers that there is a very real danger of school pupils being injured if the situation at present is allowed to continue as it understands that recommendations from Transport Scotland are not being carried out across the country, and hopes that the need to ensure the safety of children across Scotland is urgently recognised, acknowledging that Mr Beaty first petitioned the Parliament on this matter in 2005.

For full details see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 4 November 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
