Pat the Cope Gallagher


236. Deputy Pat The Cope Gallagher asked the Minister for Education and Skills his plans to provide additional accommodation for a school (details supplied); if his attention has been drawn to whether an application for replacement prefabricated accommodation was refused and to the fact that the school is awaiting approval for required accommodation; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department has no record of receiving a recent application, for capital funding, at the school in question.

It is open to schools' to apply under the Additional School Accommodation Scheme (ASA) for additional accommodation for the provision of essential classroom accommodation to meet demographic need and where additional appointments are being made.

The ASA application form may be accessed on my Department's website, www.education.ie.
