401 Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Education and Science the reason a person (details supplied) in County Roscommon must complete a 12 month home economics project within two months due to the fact that they have to repeat their leaving certificate examination due to illness; the plans he has to resolve this issue; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

On foot of a Government decision, I formally established the State Examinations Commission on 6 March 2003. The commission now has statutory responsibility for operational matters relating to the certificate examinations. Accordingly I have passed the Deputy's query to the chief executive officer of the commission for direct reply.
