Dáil Eireann Debate
Minister for Education and Science (Ms Hanafin): The building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included at section 8 of the 2004 school building programme. It has a band 2 rating. My Department’s officials recently wrote to the school authorities requesting additional information on their stage 3 submission, developed sketch scheme and a response is awaited.
My Department’s officials are also currently reviewing all projects that were not authorised to proceed to construction as part of the 2004 school building programme, including the project in question, with a view to including them as part of a multi-annual school building programme from 2005. I expect to make further announcements in this regard before the end of the year.
My officials are nearing completion of a review of all projects in line with the revised prioritisation criteria that resulted from consultation with the partners. The purpose of the review is to enable and inform a multi-annual approach to the school building programme. I expect to be providing details of this multi-annual programme before the end of the current year.
