Enda Kenny

Question:

207 Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the conditions at a school (details supplied) in County Clare; when this school will receive its promised building extension; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10888/03]

An extension is proposed for St. Michael's community college, Kilmihil, County Clare and discussions are ongoing between the County Clare VEC and my Department regarding same.

The capital programme for 2003 has been published. Given the level of financial commitments to be met from projects already in construction, it is not envisaged that my Department will be in a position during this year to appoint a design team to commence architectural planning for the project at St. Michael's. The project will, however, be given every consideration for the 2004 school building programme.
