HC Deb 07 December 1954 vol 535 cc28-9W
74. Sir D. Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why the parents of one of the pupils of whom he has been informed who joints the school conveyance, which passes the end of his road, are compelled to pay the cost of his transport to the junior school in Bettyhill while all the other pupils travel free.

Mr. J. Stuart

My information is that the Sutherland education authority has been meeting the cost of conveying this boy to school since he was transferred to the secondary department of Farr Junior Secondary School, Bettyhill, in August. Last session the boy was allowed exceptionally to attend the primary department of Farr school instead of the local school at Skerray on condition that his parents paid his fare.
