Concessionary travel passes

Robert Eriksohn made this Freedom of Information request to Bedfordshire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Bedfordshire County Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have been advised by Bedford Borough Council to redirect the following FOI request to yourselves as they do not hold the information requested.

For your information the response from Bedford Borough Council can be found here: http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/co...

I would like to make a request as regards to the concessionary travel arrangements in your authority under the terms of Freedom of Information Act.

1. Does your authority provide concessionary travel passes to those individuals registered with their local Social Services department as disabled on the grounds of being a mental health user or survivor?

2. If your authority does have such arrangements why was the decision taken to extend the scheme in this way and what arrangements are in place?

3. If your authority does not have such arrangements does your authority have some other arrangement beyond the statuary minimum to provide passes to those with mental health issues?

4. If your authority does not have such arrangements why was the decision taken not to extend the scheme in this way and has consideration been given to extending the scheme in this way in the future?

5. Would it be possible to provide copies of any relevant policy documents you may have?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Eriksohn
