Richard Bruton

Question:

178 Mr. R. Bruton asked the Minister for Education and Science whether he will accede to a request by a school (details supplied) in County Waterford to advertise for suitable contractors pending completion of stages four and five of the development in order to minimise any delay in commencement. [22239/98]

The school in question has applied to my Department for sanction to pre-qualify contractors for the building project at the school. This application is currently being considered and my Department will be in contact with school management shortly.
