John Perry

Question:

167 Mr. Perry asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the building schedule for Coola vocational school, County Sligo, has been accepted by the VEC; if he will sanction stage 1 to ensure that a design team is appointed; the time involved; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [22038/02]

The question of appointing a design team for the proposed project at Coola vocational school, County Sligo, will be considered in the context of the post-primary schools building programme for 2003. This programme will be finalised when the budgetary provision for 2003 is known later this year. My Department will be in contact with the school authorities directly at that time.
