Thank you. I understand the point in regard to space on buses for wheelchair users. Notwithstanding the issue of space for a second wheelchair, even given the larger size of wheelchairs, people have difficulty manoeuvring on buses. There is finite space but it is an issue. We want to see people with disabilities being able to live their lives in the exact same spaces that we are living ours, and public transport is going to be key to that. There is a lot of work being done and the engagement from public transport providers is very good on this, which must be put on record.
