Written answers (Question to Education)

Major school building completions across my Department regularly reach a yearly total of 40-50 projects.

In terms of providing cost details of all capital projects completed since 2010, this requires compilation of precise financial information in respect of 400-500 school building projects. The administrative burden upon my Department to carry out such a task is not warranted in the time available.

Therefore, I propose that the information requested will be forwarded subsequently to the Deputy in respect of all capital projects completed in the last 5 years.
