Written answers (Question to Education)

The Deputy will be aware that on 20th March last, I announced that 386 schools have been approved funding under the Summer Works Scheme to undertake school improvements. This first round of funding will allow schools to carry out small and medium scale building works across three categories of projects - Gas, Electrical and Mechanical. I am pleased to advise the Deputy that the application to which he refers has been successful and details are published on my Department's website. Schools can access further details and instructions on how to proceed with the projects using the on-line Esinet Portal.
