Written answers (Question to Education)

I would like to inform the Deputy that our records show that 154 Emergency Works Scheme applications were refused in 2017, 153 in 2018 and 128 in 2019. I can also inform the Deputy that 48 applications have been refused to date in 2020. The reasons for refusal ranged from incorrectly completed application forms to the works not being within the scope of the scheme.
