Ceisteanna (87)

Mary Butler

Ceist:

87. Deputy Mary Butler asked the Minister for Education and Skills if consideration will be given to providing a grant for the servicing of equipment for special schools (details supplied) as this can result in a large financial outlay for schools from the capitation grant; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

My Department provides hoists and other equipment for special schools from the Furniture and Equipment grant. While this grant does not provide for the servicing of this equipment, funding for same is made available through the minor works and/or capitation grant.
