Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 357 and 359 together.

I am aware of the request for funding referred to by the Deputies. Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB) has agreed to assist the Centre with addressing these issues. Officials from my Department have been in contact with DDLETB in that respect. A report on the project has been provided to the Department and is being reviewed. Further information is also now being sought from DDLETB. We will work with DDELTB to progress the resolution of the issues with the project as quickly as possible.
