This Council calls on the administration to:
This Council notes the Ombudsman report of 2 October 2009 and agrees the recommendations of the Statutory Report of the Monitoring Officer - Companion Bus Passes.
This Council also notes that the government let down carers and companions of disabled people by failing to include them in the statutory national concessionary bus fares scheme.
Therefore this Council calls on the government to make financial provisions for companion passes within the national bus concession scheme so that those passholders who have difficulty travelling by themselves can travel nationally on a bus with a companion free of charge.
On being put to the vote, the amendment was carried and became the substantive motion.
