Ceist:

110 Mr. Aylward asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will make an early and favourable decision to the request and submissions from the joint board of management of a proposed new community hall (details supplied) in County Kilkenny to allow it increase the floor area of its proposed physical education hall which will serve the school and the community. [15282/98]

The schedule of accommodation for the new community school in question includes provision for a standard physical education hall of 393 square metres and an ancillary/changing area of 104 square metres.

Because of the implications for the cost of the second level capital programme, I am not in a position to increase these dimensions.
