The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Report on the provision of concessionary bus travel to apprentices aged 16 to 18 and stated:

  • “(1) The Secretary of State must, within 12 months of the day on which this Act is passed, lay a report before each House of Parliament setting out possible steps to support local transport authorities in providing concessionary bus travel to persons aged 16 to 18 who are participating in statutory apprenticeships.
  • (2) Any report under subsection (1) shall include, but will not be limited to, an evaluation of whether section 93(7) of the Transport Act 1985 should be amended to enable local transport authorities to provide concessionary bus travel to persons aged 16 to 18 who are participating in statutory apprenticeships on the same terms as that which may be provided to persons aged 16 to 18 receiving full-time education.
  • (3) In this section—
  • (a) “local transport authorities” has the meaning given in section 108(4) of the Transport Act 2000; and
