Written answers (Question to Education)

I am not aware of the issue raised by the Deputy but if he can provide some additional information I would be happy to have the matter looked into further. However, I understand that the majority of HGV driving courses are funded under the Technical Employment Support Grant which is a matter for my colleague, the Minister for Social Protection.
