Deputy Charles Flanagan asked the Minister for Education and Science the position regarding the proposed extension to a school (details supplied) in County Laois in view of the recent announcement in respect of schools proceeding to tender and construction; if it is envisaged that further announcements will be made in 2009; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Deputy Batt O’Keeffe Deputy Batt O’Keeffe
Deputy Batt O’Keeffe: The building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is at an advanced stage of architectural planning.
The progression of all large scale building projects, including this project, from initial design stage through to construction phase will be considered in the context of my Department’s multi-annual School Building and Modernisation Programme. However, in light of current competing demands on the capital budget of the Department, it is not possible to give an indicative timeframe for the further progression of the project at this time. As part of my announcement on 12th February I signalled my intention to announce, later in 2009, further projects to begin architectural planning.
