I propose to take Questions Nos.175 and 219 together

I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department has received an application, for major capital funding, under the Additional School Accommodation Scheme (ASA), from the school in question. Officials from my Department have been liaising with the school authority in the context of seeking additional information to support the application.

As soon as this information is received, the application will be given further consideration.
