158 Mr. McHugh asked the Minister for Education and Science when additional resource teaching hours will be provided at Garden national school, Tuam, County Galway for the benefit of a person (details supplied) as per an application submitted to his Department; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19337/03]

Having clarified with the Deputy's office that the school in question is Gardenfield national school, Tuam, County Galway, I wish to confirm that an application for resource teaching support has been received for the person referred to by the Deputy. A decision on the application will be made as quickly as possible and my Department will advise the school of the outcome immediately afterwards.
