When publishing the 2004 school building programme, I outlined that my strategy going forward will be grounded in capital investment based on multi-annual allocations. My officials are reviewing all projects that were not authorised to proceed to construction as part of the 2004 school building programme with a view to including them as part of a multi-annual school building programme from 2005 onwards. Schools that satisfy the criteria for inclusion in the devolved permanent accommodation initiative will be identified as part of this process. I expect to be in a position to make further announcements in this matter in the course of the year.
