Written answers (Question to Education)

On 14 September 2018, the announcement of the major package of investment in education under Project Ireland 2040 confirmed that, starting this year, all primary schools will receive the €29 million minor works grant in either December or early January of each school year. 

I expect to make an announcement shortly with regard to the timing of the payment of the Minor Works Grant for the current school year.
