Small School Closures.

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin

Ceist:

46 Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin asked the Minister for Education and Science if it is his intention to conduct a review into the viability of small rural schools. [44148/09]

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin

Ceist:

50 Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will confirm that there will be no closures of small rural schools with fewer than 100 pupils. [44147/09]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 46 and 50 together.

As the Deputy will be aware, the Special Group on Public Services and Expenditure was established to examine current expenditure programmes in each Government Department and to make recommendations to Government for ensuring a return to sustainable public finances.

The report outlined that of the 3,200 primary schools in the State, approximately 47% had five teachers or fewer. The report also identified significant cost savings that could be achieved by reducing the overall number of schools through amalgamations and mergers.

The proposals in the report are being considered in the context of the current financial climate. Decisions on all of the issues arising will be a matter for the Government. While I will have to await the outcome of these deliberative processes, I can confirm that there are no plans to undertake an immediate large-scale programme of small school closures at this time. The exception to this is small schools where the question of closure would arise in the normal course under the current sustainability limits. These will continue to be dealt with in the same way and such schools may be closed if the numbers reduce over time to an unsustainable level.

However, I am of the view that my Department will have to examine the implementation of more strict guidelines in relation to the number of pupils required for both the commencement and the sustainability of schools.

It is within this context that my Department will be examining discreet groups or clusters of small schools and perhaps some individual small schools to see how we might achieve more value for money and a more efficient use of the resources that are currently allocated to these schools.

However, in considering any policy changes relating to small schools, my Department is conscious that there is a wider dimension in addition to the cost of maintaining small schools to be considered. Among the issues that will need to be taken into account are the impact of school closures on dispersed rural communities, parental choice, the availability of diversity of school provision and the additional cost of school transport.

All Patron bodies and the Education Partners will be consulted as part of any initiative undertaken by my Department in the future.

Multi-Denominational Schools.

Jan O'Sullivan

Ceist:

47 Deputy Jan O’Sullivan asked the Minister for Education and Science if he has come to an arrangement with the Protestant school community to reverse the cutbacks made to the fee paying Protestant schools in Budget 2009; his views on the long-standing tradition in which the State recognised the geographically dispersed nature of the Protestant community; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44090/09]

Bernard J. Durkan

Ceist:

389 Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the views expressed by the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin and the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin regarding specific funding for Protestant schools; the degree to which he will continue this provision; if his attention has been drawn to the widespread concern arising from earlier indications in this regard and the need to provide reassurances; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44480/09]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 47 and 389 together.

As I stated in my reply to Deputy Hayes today, I have had several meetings with Protestant representatives, most recently on 21 October, when I met with the Committee on Management for Protestant Schools. At that meeting, I invited the committee to join a working group with my officials to explore future measures to support their schools. While I regret that the Committee has declined the invitation, I retain the belief that engagement between them and my officials is the best way to resolve the issues that are of concern.

I have repeatedly stated my, and the Government's, commitment to supporting Protestant education. Indeed, it is in order to deal with the concerns expressed by Archbishop Neill of the effect of the budgetary changes on Protestant schools that I have sought to ensure the direct involvement of those involved in Protestant education in identifying and resolving issues collaboratively. I wish also to confirm that I fully concur with Archbishop Martin's views on the contribution of Protestant schools to fostering pluralism in Irish education.

I would like to emphasise that the Government continues to provide the Block Grant, which was increased this year and amounted to €6.5 million. It is targeted as a support to individual pupils to enable them to attend Protestant schools. I would urge the Deputies to take note that it is this grant, and this grant only, which defrays fees for pupils in need, enabling them to attend day or boarding schools as required, in recognition of the dispersed nature of the Protestant community.

However, I am obliged, at all times, to act in accordance with the Constitution. The Constitution, in article 44, permits state aid to denominational schools, but only on the basis that there be no discrimination between schools under different religious management. The advice of the Attorney General has been provided on the interpretation of this provision, and I am satisfied that the budget changes are consistent with the Constitution.

It is clear, therefore, that a return to the status quo ante is not legally possible.

However, I would like to restate my commitment to working with the Protestant community to identify and resolve issues that may affect some of their schools, particularly those in rural areas, and to examine how these might be examined in a manner consistent with the Constitution.

Higher Education Grants.

Sean Sherlock

Ceist:

48 Deputy Seán Sherlock asked the Minister for Education and Science his views on allowing unemployed persons who already have a degree avail of the back to education allowance, free third level fees and the higher education maintenance grants, in view of the fact that many unemployed persons with third level qualifications or higher will need to receive new skills and degrees in completely different fields if they are to rejoin the labour market; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that persons on the labour market activation scheme are forbidden from availing of these grants; if his further attention has been drawn to the rigid requirements of most grant schemes which reject applicants who already have a qualification; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44067/09]

Under the terms of my Department's student grant and free fees schemes, students who are entering approved courses for the first time are eligible for grants and free tuition fees where they satisfy the prescribed conditions of the individual schemes, including those relating to progression.

In general, students who previously pursued a course of study are not eligible for grant assistance or free tuition fees in respect of a second period of study at the same level, irrespective of whether or not a grant or tuition fees were paid previously. The main objective of this policy is to assist as many students as possible in obtaining one undergraduate degree and in progressing, where appropriate, to a postgraduate course of study. Subject to the conditions of the individual schemes, free tuition and grants are available where students are progressing to a course at a higher level.

While I have no plans at present to change the current progression requirements of the existing schemes, my Department has been working closely with the Departments of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and Social and Family Affairs to develop appropriate responses to meet the upskilling needs of those who are losing their jobs or facing uncertain employment prospects.

Under the labour market activation scheme, 2,500 part-time undergraduate and postgraduate places have been made available for unemployed people. Although the Maintenance Grant and Free Fees schemes do not cover part-time courses, students on the scheme are not charged tuition fees and are not required to pay the €1,500 registration fee. Postgraduate students may be required to pay a small charge.

Participants are also entitled to retain social welfare payments to which they have an underlying entitlement. The Back to Education Allowance (BTEA) is a second chance education opportunities scheme designed to encourage and facilitate people on certain social welfare payments to improve their skills and qualifications and therefore, their prospects of returning to the workforce. Eligibility for the Back to Education Allowance and associated payments is determined and administered by the Department of Social and Family Affairs and is primarily a matter for my colleague, the Minister for Social and Family Affairs.

The Government is anxious to continue to ensure a co-ordinated approach to optimise the opportunities for both school leavers and mature students to engage in education and training and will keep the existing arrangements under review. The scope to develop further responses is being considered in the context of ongoing discussions with other Government Departments on developing appropriate upskilling, training and education responses for unemployed people.

Aengus Ó Snodaigh

Ceist:

49 Deputy Aengus Ó Snodaigh asked the Minister for Education and Science the action he will take on the current crisis within county councils and vocational education committees in the administering of student grants; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that many students will have to wait until January 2010 to receive the first instalment of their grant; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44149/09]

My Department acknowledges that some students are experiencing delays in the processing of their grant applications. It is understood that both local authorities and VECs, the awarding bodies for student grants, received an unprecedented number of student grant applications this year with increases in applications up by 30% in some areas. In some instances, late applications are still being received.

Both VECs and local authorities are experiencing pressures due to the increased workload associated with the increased demand for the schemes, particularly in the context of the recruitment moratorium in the public sector which, in some instances, is affecting the processing of grants. However, every effort is being made by these bodies to ensure that students get decisions on their grant applications and are paid as soon as possible.

The current difficult economic circumstances have necessitated tough choices to control public expenditure and to ensure sustainability in the long run. This includes the need to implement a recruitment and promotion moratorium in the public sector. It is inevitable that staffing constraints on public bodies will lead to certain pressures on services. However, these bodies, even in these challenging circumstances, are endeavouring to ensure that the work associated with the processing of grants is prioritised.

Apart from the pressures associated with the volume of applications, a significant number of outstanding grant applications have not been processed in full because the applications were incomplete. I would remind students and their parents to return all necessary supporting documentation as early as possible to help the awarding bodies make prompt decisions on entitlement. I have asked the Higher Education Authority to request institutions to be flexible in respect of the payment of the student services charge for those still awaiting a decision on their grant application.

I am assessing organisational options for the processing of grant applications in the longer run with a view to streamlining operations and achieving more effective administrative efficiencies. Possible options for a more significant aggregation of functions are now being explored in the context of budgetary considerations and the Government's overall programme of public service reform.

In the interim, my Department is working closely with local authorities and VECs on a number of initiatives, some of which are already leading to administrative efficiencies and alleviating some of the pressures on awarding authorities. These initiatives, which will also enhance the level of service to students, include the provision of advance payments for student grants to all awarding authorities, migration of grant payments directly to students on a phased basis by way of electronic funds transfer and improvements to the grant application process.

Question No. 50 answered with Question No. 46.

School Management.

Joe Costello

Ceist:

51 Deputy Joe Costello asked the Minister for Education and Science if he has completed his review of the legal and related issues surrounding the application by Educate Together to be recognised as a patron for a post-primary school; the reason his officials raised concerns recently at a meeting (details supplied) regarding Educate Together’s proposal not to stream students at second level; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44084/09]

My Department is considering a number of broad policy issues relating to the recognition process for second level schools and the application from Educate Together to be recognised as a patron body at second level is being fully examined within the context of the relevant legal, financial and other factors.

In recent talks between officials from my Department and representatives from Educate Together, there was a wide-ranging and constructive discussion about the issues associated with Educate Together's application to become a patron at second level. The discussion also focussed on the blueprint for post-primary education published by Educate Together in June of this year. This blueprint outlines the approach by Educate Together to providing an inclusive education where all young people, whatever their ability, will be provided with learning opportunities and classroom practices that explicitly take account of the different ways students learn.

Educate Together's proposal not to stream students at second level was one of a wide range of issues discussed at the meeting with them. The main focus of the discussion related to the potential enrolments in any school given recognition by the Department, the necessity to cater for as wide a range as possible of the community served by the school and the extent of curricular range that would be available in an Educate Together school. My Department does not oppose the principle of mixed ability classes. The purpose of raising the issue was to seek clarification on how a policy of not streaming pupils would be implemented in practice.

In view of the range of issues involved, it has not been possible to bring this matter to a conclusion as quickly as I would have liked. However, it is my intention to finalise this matter and convey a decision to Educate Together at the earliest date possible.

Flood Damage.

Jim O'Keeffe

Ceist:

52 Deputy Jim O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the damage arising from the recent flooding at University College Cork; if he has proposals to deal with same. [44143/09]

Jim O'Keeffe

Ceist:

60 Deputy Jim O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the loss, damage and disruption caused to students at University College Cork arising from the recent flooding which affected student accommodation and led to damage and loss of books, laptops and personal belongings; if he has proposals to assist them in their difficulties. [44144/09]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 52 and 60 together.

I am very conscious of the hardship being experienced by many people across the country due to the recent unprecedented flooding. In regard to University College Cork specifically, I visited the University yesterday to view the position at first hand. My Department has also received an initial report from the University Authorities detailing the extensive flood damage caused to educational facilities and student residences. I understand that 29 of the University's individual buildings were flooded including the recently constructed IT Building. I further understand that approximately 30 acres of the University's 80 acres land bank were submerged in flood water.

Apart from damage to buildings and facilities, at the human level I understand that close to 2,000 students were forced to evacuate their student residences. A significant recovery effort involving well over 150 people has been undertaken with an emphasis on addressing emergency and safety issues. I congratulate all involved in working speedily to minimise risks and restore as best as possible normal activities at the University.

I have been advised by the Higher Education Authority that the University has in place adequate and appropriate levels of insurance. Loss assessors acting on behalf of the insurers have already visited the University to examine at first hand the extent of damage caused. It is not possible at this early stage to quantify the full extent of the damage until further surveys and assessments are complete.

Finally, the Deputy may recall that earlier this year I extended a scheme of minor works funding that existed within the institute of technology sector to the country's 7 universities. Under the scheme, UCC derived funding of €3.6m in the current year. This funding will enable the college to address urgent small-scale capital issues on a priority basis.

Loss of personal property would also fall to be dealt with by individuals' insurers.

Schools Building Projects.

Denis Naughten

Ceist:

53 Deputy Denis Naughten asked the Minister for Education and Science the position regarding the review of the school building capital programme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44127/09]

As I have indicated previously to the House, I am currently in the process of reviewing my Department's school building and modernisation programme with my officials in the context of the Estimates for 2010. I intend making a further announcement on the school building programme when that review has been completed.

Decisions in respect of the expenditure of the annual allocation are made on the basis of the elements of the school building and modernisation programme that are most pressing in terms of need.

The Forward Planning Section of my Department has carried out a study of the country to identify the areas where, due to demographic changes, there may be a requirement for significant additional school provision at primary and post-primary levels over the coming years. The study indicates that the requirement for additional primary provision in 2010, 2011 and 2012 is likely to be greatest in 42 selected locations across the country, based on significant changes to the demographic profile of those areas.

This information has been circulated to all existing school Patrons who have been invited to bring forward proposals for the expansion of existing schools or indeed to put themselves forward as Patron for any new primary school, should it be required. The requirement for the establishment of new schools will of course be lessened where it is possible to expand and extend existing schools in those areas.

In addition, this Government has shown a consistent determination to improve the condition of our existing school buildings and to ensure that the appropriate facilities are in place to enable the implementation of a broad and balanced curriculum in those schools.

The principal component of the school building and modernisation programme is, and will remain, the delivery of large scale projects which consist of either new schools or major extensions or refurbishments of existing schools. However, the level of demand on the school building programme is such that all projects cannot be carried out together. They will have to be carried out over time in a structured and coherent manner and that is the reasoning behind the Department's published prioritisation criteria.

Other factors which have to be taken into consideration include contractual commitments which will be carried into 2010 from this years programme and the procurement of sites where this is necessary.

I should add that in addition to the major projects, there are a number of other schemes in operation, such as the Summer Works Scheme, the Energy Efficiency Scheme, the Permanent Accommodation Scheme and the Emergency Works Scheme.

All of these factors will inform the Departments Building Programme for 2010 and subsequent years.

School Accommodation.

David Stanton

Ceist:

54 Deputy David Stanton asked the Minister for Education and Science further to Parliamentary Question No. 522 of 23 of June 2009, if the review of his Department’s policies and procedures for the provision of temporary classroom accommodation has been completed; if he has received a report regarding same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44146/09]

The review of policies and procedures for the provision of temporary classroom accommodation is well underway.

One change in policy that has been implemented is to grant aid the purchase (rather than rental) of temporary accommodation where the need for such accommodation is likely to exist for more than 3 years. Furthermore, since July 2008, it is my policy to offer schools being approved for grant aid for temporary accommodation the option to use their capital grant aid to build a permanent classroom(s) rather than purchase a prefab. As at the end of October 2009, 210 schools have been approved funding for the purchase of prefabricated classroom(s) with the option of building a permanent room(s). 61 of the approved schools have indicated to my Department that they intend purchasing prefabs and 60 intend to use the grant-aid to build a permanent room. The remaining schools have not yet indicated their preference.

These policies will reduce the usage of temporary accommodation and, particularly, the incidence of long term rental of prefabs and have already contributed to emerging savings of approximately €14m on annual expenditure on rental of temporary accommodation in 2009 as compared to 2008.

In addition, my Department has engaged a specialist firm to develop new procedures and systems for the provision of temporary accommodation with a view to achieving best value for money. Work is well underway and the firm of specialists is working closely with officials in the Planning and Building Unit of my Department. The review incorporates the development of standard specifications for temporary accommodation, the development of new contractual terms to incorporate buy-out and relocation options to cater for individual local circumstances and appropriately protect the interests of the Department and school authorities. My Department has received a draft of a new contract for the provision of temporary accommodation which is currently under consideration. The work on the development of standard specifications is also well advanced.

Another strand of the review is negotiations with prefab suppliers to buy out existing rental contracts or reductions in annual rent, as appropriate. An initial group of 46 schools with rented prefabricated accommodation has been identified for priority negotiations with suppliers to buy out existing rental contracts.

I expect that I will be in a position to approve a number of these purchases of prefabricated accommodation in the coming weeks.

The focus of this review is the development and adoption of practical measures and policies to achieve best value for money in the area of temporary accommodation in schools and not on the production of a written report. The target outputs of the review include a set of standardised specifications for prefabricated accommodation, a suitable generic contract for the rental of prefabricated accommodation and recommendations for the buy-out of certain prefab rental contracts. My officials will continue to evaluate the progress and outcomes of the review and report to me in this regard.

Third Level Charges.

Martin Ferris

Ceist:

55 Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will respond to claims that moneys collected from the student registration fee are not used to fund student services; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44152/09]

Martin Ferris

Ceist:

61 Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will confirm that there will be no further increases in the student registration fee. [44151/09]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 55 and 61 together.

As the Deputy will be aware the student services charge is levied by third level institutions to defray the costs of examinations, registration and students services. These services may include on-campus medical and counselling facilities for students, access and disability services, careers office, student facilities, student clubs and societies etc. Currently, the student services charge is decided annually by third-level institutions in consultation with the Higher Education Authority (HEA) and my Department. Any change in the level of this charge would only be considered where the increase is intended to bring the amount contributed by students into line with the costs of the range of students services provided.

As already announced, the Government indicated that it was prepared to accept increases in the level of this charge for the academic year 2009/10 to bring it to a limit of €1,500 in individual higher education institutions. In the previous academic year, 2008/2009, the charge stood at €900. The increase in the charge for the 2009/2010 academic year enabled individual institutions to bring the amount contributed by students more into line with the real cost of providing student services in those institutions. This was agreed on the understanding that the revenue generated by the increase adopted by each institution would reflect their requirements in defraying the full cost of items that fall to be funded by the charge. Where income from the charge did not previously meet the full cost of these services, this required an effective cross subsidisation by institutions from their general block grant funding.

Systems of local accountability to students are in place across higher education institutions in respect of the use of resources generated by the charge. The Higher Education Authority has issued a Framework of Good Practice for the Provision of Student Services to the publicly funded higher education institutions. The Framework consists of guidelines to establish an appropriate system of consultation with students in the allocation of funding from the charge and in the determination of student services to be funded from this source with particular emphasis on principles of transparency and accountability. The HEA has written to all institutions on a number of occasions to ensure that correct procedures are in place, and to remind them of their function in relation to the student services charge, in accordance with the Framework of Good Practice.

I have asked the HEA to ensure that all institutions are using the full income from the charge for the purpose which it is intended relating to student services.

Higher Education Grants.

Aengus Ó Snodaigh

Ceist:

56 Deputy Aengus Ó Snodaigh asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to the fact that 50 students are dropping out each week due to delays in grant payments; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44150/09]

It is not possible to assess the scale of drop out in the current year on the basis of data currently available to my Department and the Higher Education Authority. However, the issue of student retention is a priority issue for me and it is an issue that will increase in importance in light of the recent increases in student enrolments in the last two years.

In light of my prioritisation of retention, the Higher Education Authority are currently researching this issue. Improvements in the quality of administrative data due to the development of the Student Record System since 2004 are underpinning this new analysis of retention, progression and completion, which will be available early in 2010.

The process of assessing eligibility for third level grants and the organisation, management and payment of student grants are matters for the relevant local authority or VEC. These bodies seek to ensure students get decisions on their grant applications and are paid as soon as possible.

The terms of the Higher Education Grants Scheme and the Vocational Education Committees' Scholarship Scheme for the 2009/10 academic year provide for the payment by the Local Authorities/VEC's of each maintenance grant in three equal instalments as early as possible in each term.

Students and parents should ensure that all necessary supporting documentation is provided at the earliest date to assist the awarding bodies to make prompt decisions on entitlement.

The Higher Education Authority on my behalf have requested institutions to be flexible in respect of the payment of the student services charge for those still awaiting a decision on their grant application.

Schools Building Projects.

Bernard J. Durkan

Ceist:

57 Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Science the number of school building projects before his Department; the number that have been on the waiting list for less than five years; the number on such lists for more than five years; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44202/09]

My Department currently has 226 major capital projects for school buildings at various stages of architectural planning. These range from projects where a design team is to be appointed to those currently at tender stage.

Applications for 34 of these projects were received since January 2005.

Applications for the remainder of these major capital projects would have been received in my Department prior to January 2005.

Educational Projects.

Denis Naughten

Ceist:

58 Deputy Denis Naughten asked the Minister for Education and Science the position regarding the project maths programme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44126/09]

The Project Maths initiative is designed to encourage better understanding of Maths, to reinforce the practical relevance of maths to everyday life, and to ensure better continuity between primary and second level, and junior and senior cycle. It is being led by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, working in collaboration with my Department and the State Examinations Commission. The initiative started in 2008 and is being piloted in 24 schools. The curriculum changes will be phased in over three years and mainstreaming will begin in 2010/11 in all schools, prefaced by a national programme of professional development for teachers which began in October and which will continue to at least 2013.

Students in the 24 schools involved in the initial implementation from September 2008 are experiencing mathematics in a new way. Teachers are being provided with classroom materials to enable them to adopt the new approaches and will be supported professionally in embracing change. These materials and supports will include lesson plans, with teacher guides and student worksheets, online exemplars and a range of assessment materials.

Project Maths is being supported by intensive investment in professional development for teachers. A Maths Support Team has been appointed and some €3m has been provided for the programme in 2009 alone. Investment in professional development for teachers will continue in a rolling programme of reform.

Project Maths is being implemented on a phased basis covering the following five strands of mathematics:

Phase 1 Strand 1 statistics and probability;

Strand 2 geometry and trigonometry

Phase 2 Strand 3 number; Strand 4 algebra

Phase 3 functions

Phase 3 will have begun in all schools in 2012, and will be fully implemented in all class groups by 2015.

The NCCA website www.ncca.ie. sets out the draft syllabus for Strands 1 to 4 at junior and senior cycle, a draft common Mathematics course for the first year in junior cycle, and a Geometry course. The website www.ProjectMaths.ie sets out additional supports in the form of teaching and learning plans, a forum for teachers, and additional resources. These resources will expand over time.

Pupil-Teacher Ratio.

Bernard J. Durkan

Ceist:

59 Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Science the extent to which class sizes and pupil teacher ratios have varied in the past three years to date in 2009; the action he will take to bring about a restoration to the best practice over this period; the degree to which it is intended to address these issues in the short to medium term; if he has received requests from the various school authorities here seeking such improvements; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44203/09]

At primary level the average class size for each of the years 2006/07, 07/08 and 08/09 was 24.09, 23.9 and 23.8 respectively.

The pupil teacher ratio varied from 16.41:1 in 2006/07, 16:1 in 2007/08 to 15.9:1 in 2008/09.

At post-primary level the PTR in 2006/07, 07/08 and 08/09 was 24.09, 23.9 and 23.8 respectively.

Data in relation to the 2009/10 school year is currently being collected from schools and will be made available when processed.

The Revised Programme for Government commits the Government to no further increase in the pupil teacher ratio in primary and second level schools for the lifetime of this Government. Under the revised programme there is a commitment to provide 500 teaching posts between primary and second levels over the next three years. These posts will be allocated to the schools that are most seriously affected by the recent increase in the PTR, using objective criteria.

A consultation process in relation to the allocation of these additional posts is currently underway between officials of my Department and the education partners.

Schools Building Projects.

David Stanton

Ceist:

62 Deputy David Stanton asked the Minister for Education and Science the research or investigations conducted into the need to provide additional schools and classrooms in the Midleton and east Cork area at both primary and second level in the coming years; the action he has taken or plans to take in this regard; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44145/09]

The Forward Planning Section of my Department utilises the latest in GIS technology to assist in planning school requirements in the future. The Geographical Information System contains information on all schools in the country, primary and post primary level, geo-coded to their location. The information is then linked to the relevant demographic information for those areas — typically the demographic information will be from the Central Statistic's Office Census data, the General Registrar of Births, the Department of Social and Family Affairs, An Post's Geo-directory and information supplied by Local Authorities through Development Plans.

Growth projection figures are applied to the existing population with a view to assessing future requirements and areas of highest growth at primary and post-primary level.

The Forward Planning Section of my Department has carried out a study of the country to identify the areas where, due to demographic changes, there may be a requirement for significant additional school provision at both primary and post-primary levels over the coming years.

The study indicates that the requirement for additional primary provision in years 2010, 2011 and 2012 is likely to be greatest in a total of over 40 locations across the country based on significant changes to the demographics of those areas. Midleton/Carrigtwohill is one of those locations.

Following this analysis, decisions will be taken on the means by which emerging needs will be met within the area.

Any proposed building projects will be considered in the context of my Department's multi-annual School Building and Modernisation Programme for 2010 and subsequent years. However, in light of current competing demands on the capital budget of my Department, it is not possible to give a more indicative timeframe for the delivery of the projects at this time.

I propose to take Questions Nos. 63 to 66, inclusive, together.

The Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS) is the official source of data on employment and unemployment. It provides estimates at State and regional levels but does not provide data for counties or smaller areas. However, the Live Register does provide information at county and local office level. Table 1 contains live register information for each county while Table 2 gives corresponding information for each local social welfare office in Dublin, for each month from December 2007 to October 2009 inclusive. The two tables contain a breakdown by gender and by age group. The Live Register is not designed to measure unemployment according to international ILO definitions.
