Question:

203 Miss Quill asked the Minister for Education when sanction will be given for a grant towards roof and window repair for a school (details supplied) in Cork; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [2059/96]

The board of management of the school in question has made application to my Department for a grant towards roof and window repair. Grant aid sanction was approved in April 1995 for roof repairs.

A tender report was submitted recently by the school's consulting engineers for the repairs to the windows and roof covering. This report is currently being examined by the Department's technical staff and a response will be conveyed to the school's authorities as soon as possible.
