The Premier today visited a bus driver who was assaulted by an abusive passenger.
Mr Burt said on twitter: “I took some time to visit my friend, Mr Peter Ramotar at his home where he is recovering from an assault that occurred while doing his job transporting primary school students home.
The Government is committed to keeping bus operators safe & I wish Mr Ramotar a fast recovery.”
Mr Ramotar was punched and kicked in the head after he tried to get a passenger who was abusive to youngsters off his bus.

A police spokesman said at the time that a 55-year-old man was assisting police with their inquiries.
