Dáil Éireann Debate
167. Mr. Gregory asked the Minister for Education, further to her reply to Parliamentary Question No. 221 of 25 February 1997, if she will fund a replacement teacher for the teacher seconded to the special project in view of the fact that the school is currently paying a replacement teacher from its own scarce resources; and if the necessary funds will be made available in view of the fact that the Office of Public Works has passed the security work referred to as a matter of urgency. [6760/97]
Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): My Department sanctioned the secondment of a teacher on a recoupment basis to the educational support project. I am not aware of an application having been received from any source to alter the status of the secondment from recoupment basis to non recoupment. However, if the managerial authorities of the school in question wish to submit such an application, it will be examined carefully.
My Department has received a report on the security works required at the school. The matter of providing funding towards the cost of this work will be considered in the context of future capital allocation.
