School Funding

A good day in the House this morning as I got the chance to speak briefly in the School Funding debate. Just off now to meet with the students of St Josephs School who have come down to the House. Have also been told that the decision on Prudhoe High School is now not allowed to be made until after the May 3rd elections - the reason is that the govenrment are prevented from any announcements that may influence in either way the elections up and down the country: this is called the purdah period. Apologies for those waiting but I am assured we will find out very soon after that date.
