John Cregan

Question:

205 Mr. Cregan asked the Minister for Education and Science the position regarding the provision of two prefabs to a school (details supplied) in Dublin 11 which was given sanction in July 2002; if they have been supplied with the two additional teachers; the position regarding acceptance of a tender; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10873/03]

The 2003 school building programme has now been published and full details in relation to individual projects are available on my Department's website at www.education.ie.

On the basis of the budgetary allocation it was not possible to include any further projects in 2003. The budgetary allocation for 2004 and subsequent years will determine the rate of progress on projects that could not be included in this year's programme. In the meantime, individual schools should use their devolved grant to deal with any urgent health and safety works
