508. Mr. N. O'Keeffe asked the Minister for Education and Science if his Department will assist in having a suitable site identified for a school (details supplied) in County Cork. [17458/02]
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey)
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey): My Department has an extensive primary school building programme underway at present, details of which are available on my Department's website at www.education.ie.
For financial reasons, my Department will not be in a position to purchase a site or start architectural planning for a major building project at the school referred to by the Deputy in the foreseeable future.
 In the meantime, the school's board of management should ensure that essential health and safety issues at the school are attended to. They should therefore continue to use the devolved grant for minor works and if the cost of any works of an emergency nature exceeds the amount available under the devolved grant, they may apply to my Department's building unit for grant-aid.
