Written Answers. - County Wicklow Transport Grant.


asked the Minister for Education whether his Department have decided to honour their commitment to the parents of a pupil (details supplied) in County Wicklow in respect of a £300 grant-in-aid in lieu of transport facilities for their child.

I have arranged for the early issue of the appropriate grant to the parents of the child in question. The implication in the question that there was at any time a suggestion of this grant not being paid is unfounded, as the grant is payable in accordance with set criteria, known to the family, and fully met in this case.
