Section 10 Reports on quality partnership schemes
24.This section imposes a duty on local transport authorities to prepare a report on the effectiveness of each QP scheme for each successive 12-month period and to submit these reports to the Scottish Ministers. In preparing reports, authorities must have regard to representations received during the relevant period. An authority may require an operator to provide information, and the operator is under an obligation to provide that information in so far as the provision of that information would be reasonable. Reports are to be submitted within 6 months of the end of the period to which they relate. The traffic commissioner must be consulted on the terms of the report before an authority submit it to the Scottish Ministers.
