Dáil Eireann Debate
190. Deputy David Stanton asked the Minister for Education and Science the progress made further to an application from a school (details supplied) in County Cork for assistance in securing a new building for the school; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25411/09]
Minister for Education and Science (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): The school to which the Deputy refers has applied to my Department for capital funding for a large scale building project. The application has been assessed in accordance with the published prioritisation criteria for large scale building projects and has been assigned a Band 2 rating.
The progression of all large scale building projects, including this project, from initial design stage through to construction phase will be considered in the context of my Department’s multi-annual School Building and Modernisation Programme. However, in light of current competing demands on the capital budget of my Department, it is not possible to give an indicative timeframe for the progression of the project at this time.
