School Transport Bill — Clause 1 — School travel schemes — 16 Dec 2004 at 15:15
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted in the minority (Aye).
The Aye-voters failed to change the School Transport Bill to make it necessary for the local authority to consult with the Welsh Assembly when they proposed their travel scheme.
The actual amendment was: in page 2, line 12 [Clause 1], at end insert:
2A (1) Scheme authorities shall, prior to the submission of a proposed school travelscheme to the appropriate national authority, undertake a consultation process in accordance with regulations made by—
(a) in England, the Secretary of State, and (b) in Wales, the Assembly for Wales.
(2) Regulations under subparagraphs (l)(a) or (b) may, in particular, include a list of statutory consultees to be asked for comments on the proposed scheme and provide for the nature of the consultation process.
The debate up until this point had been about a different amendment that had been withdrawn and replaced with this one immediately before the vote.
