Brandon asks Norfolk County Council: “Why the U-turn?”

I have written to Norfolk County Council to express my disappointment with both the content and tone of a letter sent by the Council to parents in Belton & Burgh Castle.

The letter in question appears to show an about turn in Council policy on free school bus passes for children in Belton & Burgh Castle, despite assurances at the last Cabinet meeting that the policy would be postponed until February. I have called for an explanation from the Council as a matter of urgency as the decision will cause financial hardship for many residents.

I am meeting concerned parents to discuss the matter today.
