Written Answers. - Regional Technical College for Dún Laoghaire.

166.

asked the Minister for Education if, in view of the large student population in Dún Laoghaire, he will ensure that one of the proposed Regional Technical Colleges for the Dublin area will be located in this area to provide for their requirements and to make the necessary ancillary services available.

I am awaiting a report from the Higher Education Authority on the future development of third-level education in the Greater Dublin area. The needs of the Dún Laoghaire area will be taken into account when this report becomes available and is being considered in my Department.
