Ivan Yates

Question:

1135 Mr. Yates asked the Minister for Education and Science the current situation in relation to the provision of a new primary school (details supplied) in County Wexford; if the site has been fully acquired for the new school; and if it will proceed to tender for construction. [20701/00]

The property management section of the Office of Public Works is acting on behalf of my Department in relation to site acquisitions generally and is currently dealing with the acquisition of a site for the new primary school in question. It is too early to say at this point when construction will commence, however, the school authorities will be kept informed of progress as it happens.
