Has my hon. Friend seen the correspondence that I had with his Department on this subject before he joined it? Does he not agree that the 3-mile rule is being applied harshly? Is he aware that in my constituency parents who live so close to each other that they would normally use the same bus-stop are treated differently in terms of the provision of school transport? Will he do something to speed up the working party's report on this subject and let us have some sense in dealing with it?
