1. This is not information held by the Council. Each bus company will be awarded funds in line with the current reimbursement rates directly by Transport Scotland. Information that is not held falls under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Information not held.

2. We have 44795 valid/issued cards.

We do not know the number of those entitled to a card, all we can say is that this is approximately 49% of the population of Moray over the age of 5.
