Written answers (Question to Education)

I have not met with the Secretary of State for Education since the beginning of 2019. However, I took the opportunity to meet with Nick Gibbs, Minister of State at the Department for Education in the UK, when I attended the Education Council meeting in Brussels in May 2018. We had the opportunity to discuss the issue of Brexit and its potential education impact specifically in Northern Ireland, along with a number of other issues of shared priority.

I intend to meet with Secretary Hinds in the coming weeks.
