Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

Consideration of any new PPP projects will be based on an evaluation of the completed pilot PPP schools project together with a thorough assessment of affordability of any new projects in the context of the competing demands on the capital funding envelopes. EUROSTAT recently announced changes to the accounting treatment of PPPs and these changes will also be taken into account in the consideration of any new projects.
