The West Belfast MP said:
“I spoke with the Education Authority and welcome the fact they have put a critical incident plan in place to support the schools affected by yesterday’s fatal shooting of Jim Donegan.
“This will include making counselling and support services available in the short term and long term as it is vital that school pupils and teachers receive the appropriate help at this time.
