Written answers (Question to Education)

The school to which the Deputy refers submitted an application for funding under my Department's Emergency Works Scheme to carry out works to the school's floors. The application was refused as the works were deemed to be outside the scope of the scheme.

My Department is currently considering an appeal which has recently been received from the school authority in this respect. A final decision will issue directly to the school authority as soon as that appeal process has concluded.
