Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy is aware, a new site will be required for the school in question and my Department has commenced the site identification process in relation to same. In line with protocols for the use of State property assets, my Department has written to the Department of Defence enquiring if the Department is in a position to provide a site that could be suitable. Due to commercial sensitivities surrounding site acquisitions in general, I cannot comment further at this point in the process, though I can assure the Deputy that my Department is making every effort to progress the matter.
