Mr. N. Dempsey Mr. N. Dempsey
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey): The large scale building project for the school is listed in section 6 of the 2003 schools building programme and is published on my Department's website at www.education.ie. This project is at stage 4/5 of architectural planning, detailed design/contract documents. My Department has assigned it a band 2 rating in accordance with the published criteria for prioritising large projects.
Projects listed in sections 6 and 7 will not be authorised to progress beyond their current stage of architectural planning at this time. Budgetary provisions in 2004 and subsequent years will determine the rate of progression to tender and construction of these projects in conjunction with the band rating individually assigned. In the meantime schools should, as appropriate, use their devolved grant to deal with any urgent health and safety works.
