§ 15. Mr. Haynes
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many responses he has received on the consultation on the draft Education Reform (Northern Ireland) Order 1989.
§ 17. Mr. Dunnachie
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many responses were received in the consultation on the draft Education (Northern Ireland) Reform Order 1989.
§ Mr. Haynes
Is the Minister aware that hon. Members on the mainland share the concern of hon. Members representing Northern Ireland about the problems associated with Northern Ireland? Outside the Education Reform (Northern Ireland) Order I would like to know whether the Minister shares my belief that there should be total integration of children in schools?
§ Dr. Mawhinney
First, it is one of the sadnesses of the education reform proposals for Northern Ireland that the majority of hon. Members representing Northern Ireland have expressed no views on them during the consultation process. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will welcome the fact that the Order in Council is likely to include specific proposals to promote and to facilitate integrated education in Northern Ireland.
