The property management section of the Office of Public Works, which acts on behalf of my Department in relation to site acquisitions generally, has carried out visits in relation to a number of sites offered for the school referred to by the Deputy. A technical report on these sites is now being prepared.

There are a number of school building projects awaiting site resolution, including that of the school in question. Given the commercial sensitivity attaching to any site acquisition, I believe that it is more pragmatic to position these projects within the multi-annual schools capital programme as and when site acquisition issues are resolved.
