Mr. Kenny Mr. Kenny
Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Education and Science the details of the five appeals granted by the School Transport Appeals Board in December 2006; the circumstances in the cases involved; the reasons advanced by the appeals board for overturning the decisions made previously by or on behalf of her Department; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Mr. Haughey Mr. Haughey
Mr. Haughey: The School Transport Appeals Board is independent of my Department. The Deputy will be aware that the role of the Board is, broadly, to examine appeals against decisions made by, or on behalf of, the Department of Education and Science regarding the provision of school transport services and/or grant-aid under the terms of the School Transport Schemes.
I will arrange to have the decisions, as notified to my Department by the Board, in the five cases concerned forwarded to the Deputy, as soon as possible.
