Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin) Micheál Martin
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): I am sure the Deputy will appreciate that there are many competing demands for increased funding in all sectors of education. These demands are considered within the overall budgetary constraints. I can assure the Deputy that the question of providing additional teaching resources to second level schools through the reduction of the pupil teacher ratio will be considered in this context.
