Prior to the media announcement by the Catholic Heads Association on their position on academic selection and testing a unionist politican seems to have stolen their thunder.

Jim Allister QC MEP issued a press release on his web site.


The message was a warning on a political fudge by unionists on academic selection and testing that would see a retreat away from the 11-plus by accepting a test which has less validity and reliability than the current transfer test. No doubt he was alluding to the St Andrews Agreement and the votes obtained by the DUP on the subject.
