I propose to take Questions Nos. 741 and 742 together.

The terms and conditions of employment of teachers employed by the Vocational Education Committee (VEC) are a matter for the VEC concerned, subject to current employment legislation and to agreed procedures.

My Department has been in contact with the VEC concerned and I understand the CEO will write to the Deputy on this issue.
