Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

As I previously stated, in appointing the new National Council for Special Education I put in place a group of people with a wide range of knowledge and experience in this area. In doing this I did not set out to create a council which was representative of any particular sectoral interests, as I feel that it is very important that the council should operate in a cohesive, non representative way.
