725. Mr. Carey asked the Minister for Education and Science if his Department has had success in accessing home tuition hours for a person (details supplied) in Dublin 11; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17031/02]
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey)
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey): In January this year ten hours per week home tuition were sanctioned for the pupil in question. While this support continues to be available, I understand that to date the person in question has not availed of this service. I further understand that an educational placement was offered to the person in question in February of last year but that again the pupil did not avail of this arrangement.
Officials of my Department are in contact with the school attendance service in an effort to see what further steps, if any, can be taken in this case.
