Sir Ed demands transport for school children

Sir Edward Leigh, the Conservative candidate for the Gainsborough constituency, has written to Lincolnshire County Council urging them to extend free transport arrangements for children in his constituency.

“Constituents of mine live just under six miles from their children’s school but Lincolnshire County Council has up to now refused to pay for their transport costs,” Sir Edward, who has served the area for over thirty years as a MP, said.

“For a low-income family, £1,000 is a huge strain on resources. The recent finance bill is now law, has extended the entitlement for those on free school meals, so I have encouraged the County Council to bring this into force as soon as possible.”
