Written Answers. - School Staffing.

Question:

912 Mr. Hayes asked the Minister for Education and Science the number of primary schools in Tallaght which are projected to lose a teacher or teachers in September 1999 as a result of falling pupil numbers; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1118/99]

As yet, I have not made any final decisions regarding the staffing allocations for primary schools for the 1999-2000 school year. Accordingly, I am at this stage unable to provide the Deputy with the information he has requested.
