Mervyn Storey of the DUP tells us his party will take the Education department as their second choice. Clearly, this will be after they secure the Department of Finance; however, for this, they will need the compliance of Sinn Fein.
It has been rumoured that the DUP and Sinn Fein have already done a deal, where SF would let the DUP take Education and the DUP will let SF take DETI.
So can I ask SF or DUP - have you done a deal? Will jobs be the trade-off for Education?
