  80.  Mr. Power  Information on Seán Power  Zoom on Seán Power   asked the Minister for Education  Information on Mary O'Rourke  Zoom on Mary O'Rourke   the number of schools of 280 pupils or more in areas designated as disadvantaged in Dublin city and county which do not have remedial teachers.

Minister for Education (Mrs. O'Rourke): Information on Mary O'Rourke  Zoom on Mary O'Rourke  Of the 68 national schools with an enrolment in excess of 280 in the area in question, there are only four which do not have the services of a remedial teacher, but all of these have an ex-quota disadvantaged area post.

With regard to post-primary schools my Department allocated ex-quota remedial posts arising from various Government decisions on this issue on the basis of individual school needs rather than on the basis of geographic area.
