Written Answers. - Confey (Kildare) School Site.

87.

asked the Minister for Education if, in view of the urgent need to provide a second level school in the Confey area of Leixlip, County Kildare, he will state if a site has been purchased or if negotiations are still in progress; if negotiations are still in progress when they are likely to be concluded; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Negotiations are still in progress with the owners of a number of sites in the Confey area of Leixlip and I am hopeful that these negotiations will be concluded shortly. Arrangements have been made to enable the new school to open in September 1986 by using some spare accommodation in a primary school in the area.
