Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department does not hold details of enrolment applicants in schools. Such details are retained by the individual school authority. My Department is engaging with the Patron and the school authority in question relating to pupil places for September 2014 and will continue to keep the matter under review.
