In fairness to the Department, as I said, it delivered 64,000 school places between 2018 and 2021 during a global pandemic during which construction was closed. It seems that 150 school building projects were delivered in 2022. The Minister, Deputy Foley, in particular has prioritised ample investment in securing record capital budgets. I will ask her office to reach out to the Deputy on the outstanding correspondence and I have no doubt but that she and the Minister, Deputy Donnelly, are working closely to try to deliver this project for Greystones. As I said, work is ongoing during the month of January to finalise the 2023 programme and hopefully, that should be brought to a head soon. I will bring the Deputy's concerns about the lack of response to the Minister's attention.
