Welcome for School Bus Safety Debate

A motion tabled by Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson is to be debated in the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday, 4 November. The motion refers to the work undertaken by Gardenstown resident Ron Beaty in relation to school bus safety.

Speaking before the debate, Mr Stevenson commented:

“Ron Beaty has been petitioning the Parliament on this issue since 2005- with this current petition having been lodged in 2009.

“The key driving force behind this work is protecting our young people and I commend Ron Beaty for his work on this issue. I welcome the progress that has been made in terms of making seatbelts compulsory on school buses across Scotland but there is still much to be done.”

“This is about changing the culture surrounding school bus safety. We simply have to stay on the case and find a method by which we can place a duty, if not necessarily a legal requirement, on all our local authorities to do more.

“I look forward to the debate in Parliament on Tuesday.”

The SNP candidate in the Aberdeenshire Council Troup by-election Ross Cassie remarked:

“I am aware of the tremendous work that Ron Beaty has undertaken on this very important issue. He is to be commended for the time and effort that he has put into fighting to improve safety standards on school buses.”
