Written answers (Question to Education)

The school to which the Deputy refers applied for funding under my Department's Emergency Works Scheme to carry out roof works to the school building. The works were deemed to be outside the scope of the scheme and the application was refused in that context. 

Subsequently, the school authority submitted an appeal to my Departments Planning and Building Unit for consideration. The appeal is currently been assessed and a decision will issue in due course.
