Question

Following on from the response you gave to my Question No 2808/2006 on freedom passes would you consider TfL running a supplementary scheme (not funded by the boroughs) where TFL could grant a discretionary pass to a non-permanent resident based on the time they spend here and the disability qualifying them?

Given that the Government sponsored national scheme for concessionary bus travel will come into force next year, there seems no case for a special supplementary scheme of this kind.
