Deputy Jan O’Sullivan asked the Minister for Education and Science if she will grant funding to a school (details supplied) in County Limerick, which has previously been turned down, in order to comply with a direction of the environmental health section of the Health Service Executive regarding sanitary facilities to comply with hygiene standards; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

  Deputy Mary Hanafin: I can confirm to the Deputy that an application has been received for funding for the provision of additional accommodation and refurbishment at the school in question. The progression of all large scale building projects from initial design stage through to tender and construction, including this project, will be considered on an on-going basis in the context of my Department’s Multi-Annual School Building and Modernisation Programme. The school received funding under the 2007 Summer Works Scheme to upgrade toilet facilities.
