Northern Ireland Education Minister John O’Dowd issued a press release by DENI on Tuesday 10 December 2013 announcing the “publication” of a report which he claimed, “affirms our policy approach” http://www.deni.gov.uk/news/news-de-101213-oecd-report-affirms.htm
It may come as a surprise to the public that the DENI provided no link to the publication, conventional in press releases. PACE provide access here,

PACE also point out that the Minister had this report in April 2013 and kept it under wraps. Note that the title reinforces the fact that Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom.
