Department of Education and Skills
National Children's Hospital Expenditure
183. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the body or bodies that will be prepaid for a school building at the national children's hospital; and the amount they will be paid from his Department. [9153/19]
My Department has agreed to pay €4.3m for the construction cost of the school to be delivered as part of the new National Children's Hospital together with a sum of €714,000 plus VAT in respect of equipment. 70% of the construction cost amounting to €3.1m was transferred to the Department of Health in 2018.
This is separate to my Departments commitment to pay €10m in 2019, of an existing commitment to higher education facilities in the National Children's Hospital.
