Scottish Statutory Instrument 2006 No 107 states, 'It is to be an objective (but not a duty) of the Scottish Ministers to provide that operators are financially no better and no worse off as a result of their participation in the Scheme, taking account of the costs (including a reasonable profit) of a well run undertaking that is adequately equipped with the means to provide the eligible service.' 4. The older and disabled postal survey was sent out to 8,000 cardholders from the National Concessionary Travel Scheme database. A total of 2,993 (37%) responses were received and the findings incorporated into the report. 5.

These results should be treated with some caution given the method for assessing this change in travel behaviour, which assumed respondents fully understood the complex boundary arrangements that were in operation prior to April 2006, including those in the SPT and Edinburgh and Lothian areas. 7. In statistics, a quintile is one of the five equal populations into which a statistical sample can be divided 8. Transport Scotland piloted a study of pre SMART and post SMART boarding times and although the conclusions have still to be determined, preliminary findings suggest that boarding times, if the operators has been correctly implementing the "show and go" process, should not be markedly affected. CPT has however indicated that this is not the conclusion found by its operator members who have recently gone SMART. CPT has advised that it will soon be commissioning its own report into pre SMART and post SMART boarding times the results of which will be made available to Transport Scotland. 9. 'Shadow Fare' means that the operator records the journey made by the cardholder and records the fare equivalent for the actual journey being made by the card holder. This allows the operator to be reimbursed to reflect the actual cost of the journey 10. For example, why one individual who is 80, but still mobile, must pay a fare while another individual who is much younger, but suffers from restricted mobility, is entitled to free travel. Both are cardholders.13. Blue Badge Statistics as at 31 March 2008 approx 3,000 Badges on issue to organisations and 255,000 granted to individuals. 14.

"There are countless number of dead bodies still scattered inside the mall, and the mujahideen are still holding their ground," the group claimed. The Kenyan police responded with a Twitter message of its own, urging people to ignore "enemy. propaganda" and assuring that the defence forces were continuing to "neutralize" the terrorist threat. "Troops now in mop up operations in the building," the police said. "More to follow. Security forces carried a body out of the mall, which remained on fire, with flames and smoke visible. A Kenyan soldier wearing bomb disposal protective gear also exited the building. While the government announced Sunday that "most" hostages had been released, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 were still being held by a band of attackers described as "a multinational collection from all over the world." Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed said "two or three Americans" and "one Brit" were among those who attacked the mall. The attacker from Britain was a woman who has "done this many times before," Mohamed said. officials said they were looking into whether any Americans were involved. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Monday that the department had "no definitive evidence of the nationalities or the identities" of the attackers. Britain's foreign office said it was aware of the foreign minister's remarks, but would not confirm if a British woman was involved. The security expert, who insisted on anonymity to talk freely about the situation, said many hostages had been freed or escaped in the previous 24 36 hours, including some who were in hiding. However, there were at least 30 hostages when the assault by al Shabab militants began Saturday, he said, and "it's clear" that Kenyan security officials "haven't cleared the building fully." Kenyan government spokesman Manoah Esipisu said the country's president would make an address to the nation later in the day but said he could give no immediate details on the operation. Kenyan security officials on Monday evening said they had claimed the upper hand as flames and dark plumes of smoke rose above the Westgate shopping complex for more than an hour after four large explosions. "Taken control of all the floors. We're not here to feed the attackers with pastries but to finish and punish them," Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo said on Twitter. Kenya's Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said the evacuation of hostages had gone "very, very well" and that Kenyan officials were "very certain" that few if any hostages were left in the building. But with the mall cordoned off and under heavy security it was not possible to independently verify the assertions. Similar claims of a quick resolution were made by Kenyan officials on Sunday and the siege continued. Eleven Kenyan soldiers were wounded in the running gun battles. Al Shabab spokesman Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage said in an audio recording posted on a militant website that the attackers had been ordered to "take punitive action against the hostages" if force was used to try to rescue them. A Western security official in Nairobi who insisted on not being named to share information about the rescue operation said the only reason the siege hadn't yet ended would be because hostages were still inside. Westgate mall, a vast complex with multiple banks that have secure vaults and bulletproof glass partitions, as well as a casino, is difficult to take, the official said. "They are not made for storming," he said of the labyrinth of shops, restaurants and offices. "They're made to be unstormable." At least 62 people were killed in the assault Saturday by some 12 to 15 al Shabab militants wielding grenades and firing on civilians inside the mall, which includes shops for such retail giants as Nike, Adidas and Bose and is popular with foreigners and wealthy Kenyans. The militants specifically targeted non Muslims, and at least 18 foreigners were among the dead, including six Britons, as well as citizens from France, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, Peru, India, Ghana, South Africa and China. Nearly 200 people were wounded, including five Americans. Fighters from an array of nations participated in the assault, according to Kenya's Chief of Defence forces Gen. Julius Karangi. "We have an idea who these people are and they are clearly a multinational collection from all over the world," he said. Al Shabab, whose name means "The Youth" in Arabic, said the mall attack was in retribution for Kenyan forces' 2011 push into neighbouring Somalia. African Union forces pushed the al Qaida affiliated group out of Somalia's capital in 2011. An extremist Islamic terrorist force that grew out of the anarchy that crippled Somalia after warlords ousted a longtime dictator in 1991, al Shabab is estimated to have several thousand fighters, including a few hundred foreigners, among them militants from the Middle East with experience in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
