Emmet Stagg

Question:

950 Mr. Stagg asked the Minister for Education and Science when the enrolment projections and preparation of an accommodation brief for the national school project in Celbridge, County Kildare, will be completed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1448/99]

The preparation of an accommodation brief for the north Kildare school project is under active consideration in the planning section of my Department at present. Determination of the brief is being carried out in consultation with the local inspector who has been asked to file a report on long-term project enrolments for the school. As soon as this report is to hand, planning section will be in a position to take a decision in the matter. This decison will then be conveyed to the school authorities without delay.
