Written Answers. - School Safety Measures.

Willie Penrose


976 Mr. Penrose asked the Minister for Education and Science the amount of funding provided by his Department for the implementation of safety works and measures at primary school locations; the number and names of the primary schools in County Westmeath which have sought financial assistance for safety measures; when this assistance will be provided; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1567/99]

The information sought by the Deputy is not readily available in my Department and I cannot justify assigning scarce staff resources to its compilation. If the Deputy has a query about a particular school, I will be happy to provide the information.
