278. Mr. McEllistrim asked the Minister for Education and Science when the building of the Nano Nagle's Special School, Listowel, County Kerry, can proceed to advanced stage. [4529/04]
Mr. N. Dempsey Mr. N. Dempsey
Mr. N. Dempsey: The proposed large-scale building project for the school for Nano Nagle's Special School, Listowel, County Kerry, is listed in section 8 of the 2004 school building programme which is published on my Department's website at www.education.ie This proposed project is at stage 2-3 — that is, outline sketch scheme-developed sketch schemes — of architectural planning. It has been assigned a band 1 rating by my Department in accordance with the published criteria for prioritising large-scale projects.
The proposed project will be authorised to progress to advanced architectural planning during 2004. Indicative timescales have been included for large-scale projects proceeding to tender in 2004. The budget announcement regarding multi-annual capital envelopes will enable me to adopt a multi-annual framework for the school building programme which in turn will give greater clarity regarding projects that are not progressing in this year's programme. I will make a further announcement in that regard during the year.
