101. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if it is the policy of the planning and building unit not to share details with school principals and management details of the work path, project manager and delivery deadline for the contractors supplying modular temporary accommodation for autumn 2021; if her attention has been drawn to the challenge this poses to school principals trying to plan for the new school year in autumn 2021; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

As the Deputy may be aware my Department has established a drawdown framework for the supply and installation of modular accommodation to assist schools with the delivery of accommodation for September 2021. The drawdown framework is primarily being used for projects where there is greatest demographic demand. Schools availing of the framework have been identified and the school authority informed.

My Department’s Planning and Building Unit endeavour to keep all school authorities fully informed on all aspects of their project however, if the Deputy wishes to bring to my attention a project where the school authority is not being kept informed I will be happy to have my officials provide the necessary updates.
