Basil McCrea of the Ulster Unionist Party has secured support for a motion to continue with the 11-plus for the next three years while a replacement is developed. He has called on the Education Minister, Caitriona Ruane, to adhere to the Ministerial Code and implement the wishes of the Assembly.

PACE would predict that Ruane will follow the behaviour of her predecessors and ignore entirely the convention, custom, practices of parliamentarians  and the law.
