MYTHS ABOUT THE SELB PROPOSALS (2nd October, 2013)

SAVE THE DICKSON PLAN FACTSHEET 20 sept 13

DUP Leader and First Minister Rt. Hon. Peter Robinson MLA, pledges support for the Dickson Plan

“My DUP colleagues in Craigavon and Tandragee have conducted an excellent campaign for the protection of the Dickson Plan. I was delighted to meet with representatives of the Colleges in Lurgan and Portadown earlier in June. Indeed, I gave an undertaking to do all in my power to halt those who want to decimate this system. Any decision to go against the community wishes would clearly be controversial therefore would be open to challenge at the Executive.

The Dickson Plan form of education has operated in this area for over forty years. Its unique two-tier system is cherished by those who have passed through the schools and has widespread community support. The DUP is united in its support of this localised system and will continue to campaign against those who attempt to decimate and destroy the Dickson Plan.”
