The information requested by the Deputy is set out in the following table. The number of permanent school places built in any given year can depend on the size and nature of the particular projects in construction at that time e.g. a new school at post-primary level can involve the delivery of up to 1,000 school places whereas a new primary school would typically be less than half that number of school places. The information in respect of 2019 is currently being colated and will be forwarded to the Deputy in due course.
