223. Mr. Stantonasked theMinister for Education and Science, further to Question No. 172 of 18 November 2004, if her attention has been drawn to the fact that the minor capital works account for the school in question does not have funds available in order to repair the damage that was caused to the roof of the school during the recent storms; if she will make contingency fund ing available for the emergency works; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Ms Hanafin:I understand that the school in question carries property insurance and this avenue has not been addressed. It is therefore recommended that the school authority should follow this avenue in the first instance.
Alternatively, arrangements are currently being made in my Department’s school building section for the payment of the devolved scheme for minor capital works to all primary schools. It is proposed to have these funds available in all relevant bank accounts by Thursday, 25 November 2004.
