Teachers: Northern Ireland

Volume 704: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What discussions they have had with the devolved Administration in Northern Ireland about their monitoring of the religions of teacher and classroom assistant appointments in Northern Ireland; and what discussions they have had about the teacher exemption from fair employment law. [HL5546]

Both education and anti-discrimination law are devolved matters in Northern Ireland. Neither my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, nor the Minister of State at the Northern Ireland Office, nor their officials have had any such discussions.
