Call for Home School Transport to be reviewed.
Statutory requirements on council provision of home-to-school transport should be reviewed, with current spending of £1bn a year "unjustifiable" in light of ongoing cuts to early help services, the vice president of the Association of Directors of Children's Services has said.

Stuart Gallimore, who is due to take over as president of the organisation in April 2018, said that owing to the statutory nature of home-to-school transport requirements, other than ensuring it is provided as efficiently as possible, it is an area of saving that is not open to children's services leaders.
