Education Ministry dismisses school bus safety complaints

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 29 November 2019

The Education Ministry has dismissed safety concerns about school buses raised by a union.

The Ministry says in a letter to First union it is disappointed that parents across New Zealand have been unduly alarmed when there is no evidence to substantiate the concerns.

The union says the ministry's dismissal of bus drivers' reports is of "grave concern".
