I can confirm to the Deputy that the school in question applied for funding under my Department's Summer Works Scheme (SWS) 2020 onwards for 'Fabric Defects'.

The Deputy may be aware that I announced details of the schools that will receive funding in summer 2020 in respect of applications submitted for 'Life Safety Systems projects'.

Commensurate with the level of funding set aside for the Scheme, applications are being assessed on a top down basis in accordance with the prioritisation criteria outlined in the Circular accompanying the Scheme. In that regard, applications submitted for other works will be considered under future rounds of the Summer Works Scheme.  The school in question will be considered in this regard.

Question No. 176 answered with Question No. 141.
