Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Skills)

I understand that the person in question is entitled to participate on a FÁS training course because she is in receipt of a Jobseekers Allowance since September 2010. Matters relating to Back to Work and Community Employment Schemes are more appropriate for the Minister of Social Protection.
