Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm that my Department is in receipt of an application under Category 3 (Upgrade of Electrical works) of the Summer Works Schemes (SWS) 2020 from the school referred to by the Deputy.

Commensurate with the level of funding available for SWS 2020, all applications will be assessed on a top down basis in accordance with the prioritisation criteria outlined in the governing Circular Letter for the Scheme. This Circular Letter (0027/2019) is available on my Department's website www.education.ie.

It is my intention to publish a list of successful applicants in Q4 2019 for works to be carried out in summer 2020.
