Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Skills)

I wish to advise the Deputy that, in 2010, my Department sanctioned a grant of €260,000 to the school to which he refers for the provision of an Autistic Unit and a mainstream classroom. I understand that this building project has now been completed and that the grant has been drawn down in full. My Department considers that this level of accommodation should be sufficient to meet the school's current accommodation needs.
