Ceist:

160 Ms Shortall asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the request from a person (details supplied) in Dublin 7 for the appointment of a manager for the school campus which accommodates six schools and on which a seventh is due to start in September 2003; his views on the point made by this person that it is not possible to manage the campus and administer their own school at the same time; and if he will undertake to address this issue as a matter of urgency.

I am aware of the request referred to by the Deputy. The matter is under consideration in the special education section of my Department at present and a response will issue to the school authorities at the earliest possible date.
