254 Ms Shortall asked the Minister for Education and Science further to Parliamentary Question No. 151 of 19 October 2000, the reasons for the delay in dealing with the application from a school (details supplied); and if he will ensure that funding is provided as a matter of urgency. [29989/00]

My Department's building unit is currently examining a report prepared by the Office of Public Works on the proposed works at the school in question.

The Deputy will appreciate that the application from the school concerned is one of a large number of applications being processed by my Department's building unit and it is being dealt with as quickly as possible.

The school authorities will be kept informed of developments.
