Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

In general, to be eligible for primary school transport a pupil must reside two or more miles from the nearest national school or school of amalgamation and be attending that school. My Department has requested a report from Bus Éireann regarding the question of eligibility to school transport for the family referred to in the details supplied. The case will be considered on receipt of the report.
