More as we get it
The Minister for Education has said that the government’s optimal objective is to have a full return to school in September for all children.
Joe McHugh said he did not want to envisage a situation where we continue to leave children behind.
He said the Government had to weigh the risk associated with a failure to provide children with education against other public health considerations.
He said that the Government was working towards this full return.
