Department of Education and Skills
Emergency Works Scheme Applications
316. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if she will provide funding to complete emergency works required for a national school (details supplied) in County Cork; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [3546/16]
The school to which the Deputy refers applied for funding under my Department's Emergency Works Scheme (EWG) for repairs to a retaining wall.
As the scope of works was considered to be outside the terms of this scheme, the application was refused.
The school submitted an appeal and this is currently under consideration. The Board of Management will be notified as soon as a decision has been made.
