Written Answers. - School Safety Measures.

Willie Penrose

Question:

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.
