Faith school bus cuts made by Bradford Council
8:00am Saturday 22nd February 2014 in News
One controversial proposal that was pushed through was the removal of discretionary transport entitlement for travel to faith schools.
The cut will start in September and save £220,000 starting in next year’s budget.
The cuts had been opposed by numerous religious groups, including the Bradford Diocese.
After the decision, the Venerable David Lee, Archdeacon of Bradford, said: “We regret it has happened, but it is understandable.
“We just hope schools now work with parents to help them find a way forward.”
