Mr. M. Higgins Mr. M. Higgins
 147. Mr. M. Higgins asked the Minister for Education whether national public examination results statistics are held by the Central Applications Office; if so, the years for which they are held; the reason, with the exception of 1984, examination results statistics have not been published by her Department; and if results are held by the Central Applications Office, if she will grant permission to the Central Applications Office to publish them.
Minister for Education (Mrs. O'Rourke) Minister for Education (Mrs. O'Rourke)
Minister for Education (Mrs. O'Rourke): The Central Applications Office is supplied with the results of the leaving certificate examination each year. The compilation and issue of examination results statistics, however, is a matter for the Examination Branch of my Department. Priority has been given to the running of the examinations and the issue of results in any year and the preparation of statistics has had to be postponed. Under computerisation, which it is planned to introduce this year, statistics will be readily available each year.
