School Transport Bill — Clause 1 — School travel schemes — 16 Dec 2004 at 17:00

Patrick McLoughlin MP, West Derbyshire voted in the minority (Aye).

The Aye-voters failed to change the text of the School Transport Bill to prevent local authorities charging for school transport, and from offering the scheme to children who are attending schools further than could have been arranged.

The actual amendment was: "delete lines 32-39 on page 2 of the Bill". This was one of the amendments that had been part of the batch that had been voted down in Division 20.
