Written answers (Question to Education)

Parliamentary Questions, for answer by the State Examinations Commission, are forwarded to the SEC on the day they are received in my Department. It is normal practice that all Parliamentary Questions are replied to by the answer date set by the Questions Office in the Oireachtas. Unavoidably, some delays may occur e.g. where a Parliamentary Question requires investigation or collation of data.
