Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department does not maintain a database of State owned schools that are supplied with mains water. The matter of utility supplies and costs to schools is a matter for individual school authorities and the utility provider. It is expected that schools prioritise the use of school funds to finance the cost of their water supply. Accordingly, the information sought by the Deputy is not available.
