Green TD Paul Gogarty has said his party will be voting against a Dail motion this week calling for the reversal of education cutbacks announced in this month's budget.

The party is holding a special meeting in Dublin today to discuss the cuts, which have caused major concern for many members.

However, Mr Gogarty says he is confident that the measures will be altered over time and says the Greens will not be support the Labour Party's call for the cuts to be reversed.

He says his party has let Fianna Fail know "in the strongest possible terms" that they are not happy with the plan to shed hundreds of teaching jobs and increase class sizes.
