Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

When publishing the 2004 school building programme, I outlined that my strategy going forward will be grounded in capital investment based on multiannual allocations. My officials are reviewing all projects that were not authorised to proceed to construction as part of the 2004 school building programme with a view to including them as part of a multiannual school building programme from 2005 and I expect to make further announcements on this matter during the year. The Abbey Boys national school project will be considered in this regard.
