Education Committee agrees to conduct hearings on Brexit – Carol Nolan TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Education and Skills, Teachta Carol Nolan, has welcomed the fact that the Oireachtas Committee on Education has committed to conducting hearings on the impact of Brexit on the Education sector after she proposed the item on this week’s agenda.

Teachta Nolan said:

“I welcome the fact that the Committee has agreed to conduct hearings with relevant stakeholders on the potential impact of Brexit on the education sector.

“There are huge issues in respect of student mobility north and south and also in respect of third level funding for research and development.

“It is important that the various stakeholders have an opportunity to present to the committee so that we have a full overview of the issues affecting the sector and the plans of government to deal with them.

“I look forward to meeting with all of the relevant stakeholders as soon as possible to discuss in detail the relevant concerns for the sector and help inform the debate and the government’s approach to this issue.”
