Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department’s responsibility is to provide sufficient accommodation to meet 20,000 new and replacement school places each year to ensure that every child has a school place. I wish to advise the Deputy that the site in question has been acquired for school purposes. My Department does not have any remit for the provision of accommodation for crèche facilities.
