I propose to take Questions Nos. 241, 242 and 248 together.

As the Deputies may be aware, the project to which they refer has been devolved for delivery to the local Education & Training Board (DDLETB). That remains the case.

My Department acknowledges that the delivery of this project has taken longer than originally envisaged. Most recently, a number of issues, primarily of a legal nature, have arisen in respect of the process for the pre-qualification of contractors as referred to by the Deputy. I can inform the Deputies that, having considered these issues and liaised with my officials in that respect, DDLETB is now proceeding with a revised pre-qualification process.

Once this prequalification process is completed, the project will proceed to tender stage.
