Dáil Eireann Debate
284. Mr. P. Breen asked the Minister for Education and Science the amount of money which was spent in County Clare in the schools building programme in 2001, 2002 and 2003; the number of primary schools which received funding; the number of post-primary schools which received funding; the amount each school received; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5741/04]
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey): The number of primary and post-primary schools in County Clare that were funded under the schools building programme in the years 2001, 2002 and 2003 is given in the following table.
The total number of schools concerned funded under the programme is in excess of 200. I have therefore arranged for the detailed expenditure figures on an individual school basis for each of the three years to be forwarded directly to the Deputy.
It should be noted that all primary schools have received an allocation, under the grant scheme for works grant — also known as the devolved grant — of €3,809.21 per school and €12.70 per pupil in respect of each academic year from 2000-01 to 2003-04. Nationally this annual amount is approximately €18 million. This is not included in the expenditure table above.
