[5741/04]

Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey): Information on Noel Dempsey  Zoom on Noel 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.

Primary

Year Number Expenditure
2001 47 1,548,238.09
2002 63 6,966,902.64
2003 54 2,463,194.76
Total 164 10,978,335.49

Post-primary

Year Number. Expenditure
2001 16 4,974,046.05
2002 15 8,956,253.77
2003 12 5,202,332.88
Total 43 19,132,632.70

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 [1419]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.
