The Deputy will be aware that a building project for the school in question is included in my Department's 6-Year Construction Programme. 

A site is required to progress the building project. The Patron is providing the site for the new school and the site originally offered by the Patron was not suitable. The Patron has been requested to identify an alternative site and a response from the Patron is awaited.
