192. Mr. R. Bruton asked the Minister for Education and Science if his attention has been drawn to a request from Bruce College, County Cork, to obtain an exemption whereby the schedule, which is not recognised for the payment by the State of teaching staff, could provide a centre where the junior certificate exam could be sat; the reason no decision has been issued in the case; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10509/99]
Mr. Martin Mr. Martin
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): I am aware that Bruce College has made a request to enter candidates for the Junior Certificate Examination. I have already indicated to Bruce College that the issues in question are multi-faceted and complex and that any decision will have ramifications which are broader than Bruce College alone.
The matter is currently the subject of ongoing consideration within my Department.
