Mr. Wall Mr. Wall
427. Mr. Wall asked the Minister for Education and Science the capital projects funded by his Department in the Kildare south constituency during 2000; the amount of funding in each case; the capital projects proposed by his Department in 2001; the amount of funding; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Education and Science (Dr. Woods): The information is not available in my Department in the format requested by the Deputy. However, if the Deputy wishes to obtain details of specific building projects, I will be happy to provide them.
My Department is not in a position to provide estimated costs of building projects in advance of placing a contract as to do so would compromise the tendering process. If the board is satisfied that a development charge is due to the local authority then it should consider the payment of such a charge from its devolved capital grant which is paid to all schools on an annual basis.
