Department of Education and Skills
School Accommodation Provision
213. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the reason for delays being experienced in progressing a project to provide additional classroom accommodation at a school (details supplied); if his attention has been drawn to the impact the stalemate has been having on the ability of the school to meet the accommodation and the educational needs of students; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5999/20]
The school to which the Deputy refers recently submitted a pre tender report in respect of the project in question but has included works that were outside the scope of the works approved. My Department has sought written confirmation from the school authority that it will meet the costs of these extra works. This has not yet been forthcoming and a decision on the matter cannot be made until it is received.
