asked the Minister for Education if his attention has been drawn to a statement by students of the National College of Art alleging certain breaches in the 26-point agreement on his part; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The position is that the students representatives submitted a memorandum which purported to contain details of the matters agreed upon during the discussions which they had with me and my Department. The Department made certain verbal changes in the memorandum which it felt were necessary in order to record fully and accurately the points of agreement. I have set up a Council for the National College of Art the terms of reference of which are sufficiently wide to enable it to deal with all the matters which came up for consideration.
