169. Mr. Gregory asked the Minister for Education if she will make an additional capitation grant to cover caretaking and clerical services at O'Connell boys' primary school, Dublin 3 to enable the two existing temporary staff to continue in a permanent capacity. [7503/95]
Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach) Niamh Bhreathnach
 Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): A scheme of additional capitation grants for the provision of caretaking and clerical services in primary schools was introduced in September 1992.
The current terms of the scheme provide for grant assistance at a rate of £15 per pupil for each service to a maximum of 500 pupils (i.e. £7,500 or £15,000). O'Connell boys' primary school is in receipt of a grant of £8,970 per annum (299 pupils × £30) towards the cost of caretaking and clerical services, which is the maximum amount payable under the current terms of the scheme.
Therefore, it is not open to me at this stage to make an additional grant available to this school.
