Hazzard welcomes progress of Education Bill
Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard has welcomed the progress of the Education Bill in the Assembly today.
Speaking after a debate in the Assembly, Mr Hazzard said;
"I welcome the progress of the Education Bill through the Assembly.
"The recognition of all parties, including the DUP, of the inclusion of Irish Medium Education on the new single education board is particularly welcome.
"This Bill is symbolic of what we can achieve if we work together and compromise where necessary.
"In today's debate in the Assembly every party gave a little and as a result the whole system will benefit."
