Written Answers. - Primary School Suspension Statistics.

Pat Upton

Question:

76 Dr. Upton asked the Minister for Education the number of children who were suspended from primary school for each of the years 1990 to 1994; and the number of children suspended from secondary school for each of the years 1990 to 1994. [8988/95]

Primary or second-level schools are not required to notify my Department of cases where children were suspended and, consequently, I am not in a position to supply the Deputy with the information he has requested.
