The Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, Education Minister Evarist Bartolo and Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth Edward Zammit Lewis this morning gave details of a new government initiative in children's education.

Speaking to reporters at the St Sebastian Primary School in Qormi the Prime Minister said that 40,000 students in government schools would receive Microsoft Office for free, a programme that normally would cost 100 euros per year.

The Prime Minister also spoke about the Citizenship programme proposed by the government, slamming the stance taken by the Nationalist Party and their PN MEP's who demanded that Malta be named as the country involved in the scheme.

He said the PN MEP's were singling out Malta, a move not undertaken previously when other European countries introduced similiar schemes.

Prime Minister Muscat thanked the support of socialist and green groups in Brussels who were pushing to have Malta's name removed from the resolution on Citenship.

The Prime Minister praised the work of the Labour MEP's and had particular words of praise for MEP Joseph Cuscheiri for his outstanding work in Brussels.
