I do not understand why Carers in London particularly should get special treatment?

Goes back to the very first posting under this thread !

Since then , we have expanded the Issue so that it covers the whole UK.

Only the orginal author can change the thread heading.

Perhaps to .... Free Travel In The Uk For Carers ... ?

Or , for the true cynics amogst our ranks .... Why Do Guide Dogs Get Free Travel When Human Carers Don't ?

In any event , the most read " Campaign " on this Forum.

Campaign ?

Better word ... Injustice !

Ireland ... whilst it does appear that carers are allowed free public transport when accompaning their caree , their system of a " Public Services Card " may be the prototype for the UK.

Worth surfing over for those interested in this thread.

Difficult to track down other European countries / EEC Directives on this Issue.
