Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

The building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is at an early stage of architectural planning. It has a band two rating and is at stage three, detailed plans-costs. This project was not authorised to proceed to tender and construction this year. My Department's technical staff are currently examining the stage three documentation and the school authorities will be kept advised of developments.

My Department's officials are currently reviewing all projects that were not authorised to proceed to construction as part of the 2004 school building programme, including the project in question, with a view to including them as part of a multi-annual school building programme from 2005. I expect to make further announcements in this regard before the end of the year.
