Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Skills)

Earlier this year, the General Scheme of an Education and Training Boards Bill was referred to the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel to the Government for formal drafting. It is hoped that the Bill will be published before the end of the summer. I will consider the issue raised by the Deputy in advance of publication.
