30.1    The Chair provided the following response:

 

Once again, I thank Pippa for her passionate and heartfelt deputation. You made a significant impact at Full Council and gave all councillors an understanding of the effect changes in Home to School Transport has had upon families with children and young people with Special Educational Needs.

 

I gave a full response at the council meeting; both the read deputation and my response are available on the webcast and have been well reported in local media.

 

You will hopefully see that a request for a Cross-Party Member Policy Panel has been requested in the motion that was also considered at the council meeting and is included in the extract from the minutes of the meeting and referred to in the late report we will discuss shortly.

 

In this regard I would like to move that the committee notes the deputation.  Does the Committee agree?”
