I propose to take Questions Nos. 118, 120, 121 and 127 together.

My Department’s six-year capital programme priorities building projects for demographic areas, including County Kildare. The Capital Programme also provides for devolved funding for additional classrooms for schools where an immediate enrolment need has been identified or where an additional teacher has been appointed. In this regard, my Department has no record of receiving applications for capital funding from schools in the areas in question in the context of additional teacher appointments.
