Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): Information on Niamh Bhreathnach  Zoom on Niamh Bhreathnach  I propose to take Questions Nos. 65 and 76 together.

I refer the Deputy to my reply to Question No. 152 of 3 February 1994 in which I stated that I have made provision for the allocation of an additional 25 ex-quota remedial posts to second level schools in the 1994-95 school year. Schools authorities were formally notified of this decision and advised that the posts would be allocated to schools based on need and existing remedial provision. Formal [771] applications for consideration were not invited. The position of all post-primary schools is being considered in this regard. A final decision on the allocation of the posts will be made very shortly.
