asked the Minister for Education if the grant assistance to Froebel College of Education, Sion Hill, Blackrock, Dublin, has not been increased since 1981; and if fee increases to students during that period have been over 200 per cent.
Written Answers. - Dublin College of Education.
The Froebel College of Education is paid an annual capitation grant by my Department. The rate of grant was last revised in respect of the 1981-82 academic year.
The amount of the college fee payable by students is a matter for the college authorities. I am given to understand that the fees charged are in line with those in the other colleges of education which were increased by about 95 per cent since 1981-82.
