189. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if his attention has been drawn to the unacceptable and potentially dangerous conditions that students and staff are working under at a school (details supplied); his views on whether the leaking roof and the unsafe situation this presents needs urgent remedial work; if funding will be committed to same as a matter of priority; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

My Department has no record of receiving an application for funding, under my Department's Emergency Works Scheme, from the school and for the project to which the Deputy refers.

Insofar as the school authority has identified issues that require urgent attention, as described by the Deputy, it should immediately submit an Emergency Works Application form for funding to address same. This application will then be given due consideration. The form in question is available on my Department's website.
