Ms Hanafin Ms Hanafin
Ms Hanafin: The information requested by the Deputy is not readily available in my Department. I can however confirm for the Deputy that under the prioritisation criteria for large scale building projects, the provision of specialist accommodation for children with special needs attracts a Band 1 rating. This is the highest rating possible which is indicative of my Department’s commitment to ensuring that where accommodation needs are identified, these are addressed in the shortest time frame possible.
