773. Ms Burton asked the Minister for Education and Science if she has received a copy of the parents report into the Kilkenny city vocational school parents’ association; if the parents’ report on the school has been included in the terms of the her inquiry; if not, the reason therefor; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [10481/06]

Ms Hanafin: A copy of a document, Parents’ Response on their Concerns about Kilkenny City Vocational School, has been forwarded to the Department of Education and Science. I assume this is the report to which the Deputy refers. While there is no specific reference to the report in the terms of reference of the inquiry I have established, the terms of reference are broad enough to allow the inquiry officer to consider all aspects of the matter, including the views of the parents’ association. All documentation in the Department’s possession, including the document furnished by the parents’ association, has been made available to the inquiry officer. I understand that the inquiry officer intends to meet representatives of the parents’ association in the course of his inquiry.
