Questions referred

Is Article 7(2) of Regulation (EU) No 492/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 April 2011 on freedom of movement for workers within the Union 1 to be interpreted as meaning that a provision of national law limiting the obligation of national local authorities (districts) regarding school transport to the residents of the wider constituent state (Land) has an indirectly discriminatory effect, even if it is established, on the basis of the factual circumstances, that the residence requirement quite predominantly excludes residents of the rest of the territory of the Member State from the benefit?

If Question 1 is to be answered in the affirmative:

Does the effective organisation of the school system constitute an imperative requirement of public interest which is capable of justifying indirect discrimination?
