Should all school buses be publicly funded through subsidies?

CONTROVERSIAL plans to axe funding for free buses to and from faith schools have been shelved.

Hartlepool Borough Council was considering axing £125,000 of funding in a move which would affect 340 pupils at English Martyrs School and Sixth Form College, in Catcote Road.

But a last-minute budget amendment will see the transport continue for at least the next financial year.
