1. EXCLUSION OF PUBLIC AND PRESS

The Sub-Committee resolved to exclude the public and press during consideration of the following matters so as to avoid the possible disclosure of information which was exempt in terms of Part 1 of Schedule 7A of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, Paragraph 3.

2. PROVISION OF SCHOOL TRANSPORT

There was submitted Report No 946/96 by the Director of Education setting out details of a request for the provision of school transport in respect of two children enrolled at Kilry Primary School who now lived within the catchment area of Glenisla Primary School.

After hearing the Director of Education and the local member and having considered the financial implications of the options available, the Sub-Committee agreed:-

(i) that, in light of the exceptional circumstances, and without precedent being created, school transport be provided for the children; and

(ii) that the Director of Education be authorised to discuss with the parents the most appropriate means of providing such transport.
