Question:

385 Mr. Gregory asked the Minister for Education if she can assist the parents of a child (details supplied) in Dublin 10 who has been out of school for the past 15 months, to find a school place. [16211/96]

My Department has made inquiries in this case, and the position is that the boy in question has been requested to contact his local Youthreach co-ordinator with a view to being offered a placement on a Youthreach programme which is operated by city of Dublin vocational education committee.
