Unionists blow hot and cold over campaign to save 2pm School bus service

20 October, 2005


Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson, Michael Ferguson MLA has accused unionist members of the Southern Education Library Board of failing to appreciate the public mood in relation to the loss of the 2pm bus service.

Mr Ferguson said:

"Unionist filibuster tactics meant that a motion brought forward to the Education Library Board by the primary schools' representative was frustrated.

"It is unfortunate that on this occasion that unionists have missed the public mood in relation to the loss of the 2pm bus service. They seem to blow hot and cold on this issue yet it is of huge importance particularly in rural areas and to working families.

"However, I am confident that the Education Library Board will revisit this issue and that the campaign to have the 2pm school bus service reinstated will be successful." ENDS
