Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin) Micheál Martin
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): Final decisions have not yet been taken on the staffing arrangements for primary schools for the 1998-99 school year.
However, I have asked my officials to review the position at the school to which the Deputy refers as soon as staffing arrangements have been finalised, and to correspond with the board of management directly in the matter.
