Department of Education and Skills
282. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if the undeveloped site located beside a school (details supplied) is in the ownership of his Department; if not, the ownership of same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3364/20]
The site to which the Deputy refers is not in the ownership of my Department; it is in private ownership. My Department has however agreed to purchase it and there is ongoing engagement with the owners in order to advance the purchase. Due to commercial sensitivities associated with site acquisitions generally, I am unable to elaborate further at this point.
