RTE’s John McGuinness reports from Glasgow as news comes in of a deal between the Glasgow Government and tractor supplier RTE to deliver 1,500 tractor supplies to schools across Scotland.
He reports that the agreement will mean an increase in supply to more than 20,000 schools across the country.
Mr McGuinness says the deal has already seen a reduction in the number of tractor orders from RTE in the first six months of 2018.
The agreement is one of many that RTE has with the Glasgow City Council in the run-up to the 2019 Scottish Parliament election.
It means that schools can get new supplies from a company that has already delivered more than 1 million tractor orders in the city, and is currently the only supplier to the council.
The deal will see the supply of school supplies from RTV being extended to Glasgow City Schools, and RTV will also deliver supply of schools and other essential services to a number of local authorities across the city.
Glasgow City Government and RTE are the only suppliers of supply of tractor supplies in Scotland to Glasgow city council.
Glasgow city councillors have been given the power to decide on how schools should get supplies for the rest of the year.
Mr McBride says that the Glasgow council has been working closely with RTE on the agreement, and that it has made clear to the company that the supply contract is not just about getting supplies, but about ensuring the safety and well-being of all students in the schools.
“So the agreement is about making sure our schools and communities are safe, healthy and fit for purpose. “
“This agreement is in line with the Government’s priority of providing our children with a safe and caring place to learn, and will help us deliver the very best possible school experience for the students in our schools.” “
Mr McGuinnys reports that Glasgow City’s Education Secretary, Joe Gorman, has also confirmed that the council has a role in the deal. “

“I am absolutely clear that we have a responsibility to ensure the safety of our pupils and staff and that we look after them, as we would any other vulnerable child, in any way we can,” he said.
“The contract is the only option we have for our children in our community to have that safety.”
It will also see the provision, maintenance and running of a vehicle service to be provided by the local authority, and the maintenance of the school fleet to be undertaken by RTE.” “
That means the agreement with RTV includes the provision of the necessary supply, as well as supporting the supply to the school community through the provision and delivery of essential services.

RTE said the agreement has already given Glasgow City the ability to meet a number needs.
“RTE has been supplying schools in Glasgow since the mid 1990s, with a strong history of delivering high quality and safe, reliable, and effective service to students in both public and private schools,” the company said.
It added that the new agreement would see the Glasgow Council’s role expanded further to include the provision for the provision “of the essential services and the provision to the local authorities”.
RTE added: “This means our local authorities will now be able, for example, provide a vehicle for a school bus, or for the delivery of a school uniform and coat, or to provide a supply of the safe and well being services that RTV provides to schools.”
A spokeswoman for Glasgow City Councillors said that the deal with RTe was a major victory for the council, which was working with the council on a range of services, including supply of key school supplies.
She said that they were keen to see the agreement signed off, and said that it would make Glasgow City more responsive to the needs of its schools and local communities.
She added: We are pleased to have reached a good and mutually beneficial agreement with the Scottish Government to supply the necessary and essential services for our schools in order to provide them with the best opportunity to provide an effective and safe school experience to our pupils.
These include the delivery and maintenance of a comprehensive vehicle service, the provision with the
