Leo Varadkar clarifies his position on school transport

The Tánaiste has rowed back on reports that maintained he was against free school transport.

Leo Varadkar says he doesn’t think its introduction was a mistake, but there is a case to be made for ‘nominal charges’.

It comes as some children are still waiting for a place on the school bus this year – almost two weeks into the academic year.

The Tánaiste says he understands why it was introduced, to help families with the cost of living crisis.
