When and by whom was this scheme signed off and agreed by?
What was the reasoning behind this and is it purely for monetary purposes?
Who originally sponsored or brought this to committee?
How much money does the Council see itself saving by charging the bus fare?
How much have Ceredigion Council staff claimed on travel expenses for the last three years and what are the projected expenditure figures for the next three?
How much money was spent on ferrying excluded children to alternative venues around Ceredigion , last 3 years and projected expenditure figures for the next 3 years.
Which member of staff is responsible for the scheme.
Which councillor is responsible?
Please respond in English and Welsh

Yours faithfully,

Angry Parent

sincerely apologise for the delay in responding.  Please see below the
information that you have requested:

implemented.

               The decision not to raise a home to school transport charge
for 6th form pupils was made on ?

2.            What was the reasoning behind this and is it purely for 
monetary purposes? This question is predicated on the  first question
being correct. It is not and therefore consequently has no answer.

 

3.            Who originally sponsored or brought this to committee? The
original report was in the name of Cllr Hag Harris.

 

4.            How much money does the Council see itself saving by
charging the bus fare? This question is predicated on the  first question

figures for the next three? Actual expenditure 2015-16 - £1,290,782.45;

6.            How much money was spent on ferrying excluded children to
alternative venues around Ceredigion , last 3 years and projected
expenditure figures for the next 3 years.  This information does not exist
as the Council does not have a dedicated transport system for excluded
pupils.

question is predicated on the  first question being correct. It is not and
therefore consequently has no answer.

 

8.            Which councillor is responsible? N/A This question is
