Written answers (Question to Education)

It is my understanding that the school authority referred to by the Deputy identified a site and entered into direct negotiations with the relevant owner. It would appear that those negotiations ended without agreement, as when I visited the school recently, details of the site were given to me. The matter is now under consideration by my Department. However, due to commercial sensitivities attaching to site acquisitions generally I am not in a position to comment further at this time.
