Written Answers. - County Wexford College Staffing.

494. Mr. Yates asked the Minister for Education the steps she intends to take to provide a second physical education teacher and a remedial teacher in St. Peter's College in County Wexford as there are 570 pupils in that school.

Minister for Education (Mrs. Hussey): Appointments of teachers to secondary schools recognised under the rules for secondary schools are made by the authorities of the schools. The authorised quota of teachers to whom incremental salary may be paid is determined in accordance with the rules for payment of incremental salary to secondary teachers, which are of general application.

I am not in a position to state what arrangements the authorities of the school in question will make in relation to the appointment of teachers for 1983-84.
