Ceisteanna (141)

Pearse Doherty

Ceist:

141. Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Education and Skills if an application was received for emergency works submitted by a school (details supplied) in County Donegal; if so, when a decision is likely to be made with respect to the application; if his attention has been drawn to the need to have this project expedited in view of the unsuitable nature of the existing accommodation; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I can confirm to the Deputy that the school to which he refers has submitted an Emergency Works Application. This application was assessed and the Department wrote to the school authority in that respect in July 2019. The school authority was informed that some of the proposed works did not fall within the scope of the scheme. However, it was also informed that the remainder of the proposed works can be considered under the Emergency Works Scheme. Further information was sought in that respect and a response is awaited.
