Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

Details of a streamlined application process for schools requiring temporary school accommodation for September 2005 were published recently. The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 5 November 2004. The streamlining of the application process for temporary accommodation will ensure that schools which are being allocated funding for accommodation for the start of the school year 2005-06 are enabled to provide it in a timely and appropriate manner. An application has recently been received from the management authority of the school to which the Deputy refers and will be considered with reference to the criteria outlined in the published document.
