Evening News piece that its also due to reduced support from the SNP Government in funding the Concessionary Fares Scheme. The SNP have been making great play recently of the Council Tax freeze, which is all well and good but if you reduce support for other services to the extent that we all have to pay more for the basics, (special uplifts, Garden Aid, travel from home to school for certain children) and pass on the costs to ordinary families it results in indiscriminate tax rises by the back door to those who can least afford it. Not very fair in my opinion.
