Further to my written answer WQ86159.

In recent months, my officials have held informal discussions with the Department for Education regarding the elective home education and Children Not in School proposals in the respective jurisdictions. A particular focus has been on the intended timings of the necessary legislative processes in each jurisdiction and the potential impact of any cross-border issues.
