Written answers (Question to Education)

I would like to inform the Deputy that a request for additonal funding was received from the school after the works were completed, this is considered retrospective funding which is not allowed under the terms of the Emergency Works scheme.

My Department has been in contact with the school in question and a resolution has been reached.
