Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach) Niamh Bhreathnach
Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): In 1994, I announced the appointment of an additional 100  remedial teachers to the primary sector. This brings the total number of such posts now in place to 1,133. These appointments were made on the basis of priority of need following the collection of data from schools by my Department's primary inspectorate. I will be keeping the question of further need in this area under review and the needs of all schools, including the schools referred to by the Deputy, will be considered in this context.
