HC Deb 05 February 2004 vol 417 c1055W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what assessment he has made of how the proposed new Northern Ireland post-primary education system will affect current schooling arrangements under the Craigavon-Dixon scheme. [152124]

Jane Kennedy

The Government's decisions are not imposing a 'one size fits all' system. All existing school types, including Dickson plan schools, have a place in the new arrangements, provided they meet the requirements of the Entitlement Framework. Academic selection will end and new transfer arrangements will be based on informed pupil and parental choice.
