While no specific discussions on integrated schools have taken place, my officials regularly meet with their counterparts in the Department of Education and its agencies in Northern Ireland, to review the progress of delivery of objectives under the Shared Education strand under the PEACE IV programme.

Since the Executive in Northern Ireland Executive ceased to operate in January 2017, it has not been possible to have Ministerial meetings with counterparts from Northern Ireland.
