The Democratic Unionist Party has criticised a decision by the British government to approve three new Irish-language schools in the North.
Party spokesman Sammy Wilson said there was no need to create new primary schools when there were already 45,000 surplus school places
Sinn Féin and the SDLP have both accused him of using the Irish language as a political football and have insisted that parents should have the right to choose the type of education they want for their children.
This is the typical attitude of the DUP. The Irish education sector is flourishing and somehow the DUP see this as a threat.
