701 Mr. O'Shea asked the Minister for Education and Science the proposals he has to deal with accommodation problems at Bunscoil Bhóthar na Naomh in County Waterford (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8268/01]

An application for permanent accommodation has been received in my Department from the school referred to by the Deputy. At present the application is being examined in the planning and building unit of my Department and a response will issue to the board of management of the school as soon as possible.

My Department will be in contact with the school authorities shortly concerning the provision of temporary accommodation for this September.
