As the Deputy is aware the building project for the school in question is included on my Department's capital programme.

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that agreement in principle has been reached on the proposed acquisition of a site that will accommodate both the school to which he refers and permanent accommodation for a local primary school. This acquisition is currently progressing through the conveyancing stage and my officials are working to bring it to a conclusion at the earliest possible date.
