Northern Ireland

Asked if there would be any Prime Ministerial words following the elections, the PMOS said that he was sure the Prime Minister would say something at some stage but not sure when. Asked if there would be anything before the weekend, the PMOS again recommended reporters to wait and see but added nothing would be rushed, the deadline is 26th March and St Patrick's Day came before that. Asked if there was any likelihood of the Prime Minister being in Washington on St Patrick's Day, the PMOS said no.

School Discipline

Asked about the suggestion that to improve school discipline would be to remove the right of parents of expelled children to appeal against those expulsions as 20 percent of all expulsions are overturned on appeal and did the Prime Minister have any personal sympathy that this would lead to an improvement and an option worth looking at, the PMOS said that it was down to schools and the local authorities to decide on the matter.
