 35. Miss Quill Information on Máirín Quill Zoom on Máirín Quill  asked the Minister for Education Information on Niamh Bhreathnach Zoom on Niamh Bhreathnach  when she intends to proceed with the extension to St. Brigid's national school. Convoy, Lifford, County Donegal in view of the urgency of the overcrowding and potential fire hazards in existing prefabs. [6680/96]

 46. Miss Coughlan Information on Mary Coughlan Zoom on Mary Coughlan  asked the Minister for Education Information on Niamh Bhreathnach Zoom on Niamh Bhreathnach  the reason for the delay in allocating resources towards the proposed extension to St. Brigid's national school, Convoy, County Donegal in 1995; if she will sanction funding as a matter of urgency; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [6595/96]

Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): Information on Niamh Bhreathnach Zoom on Niamh Bhreathnach I propose to take Questions Nos. 35 and 46 together.

A building project at St. Brigid's national school, Convoy, County Donegal, is included in my Department's [1403] national school building programme in 1995. The project has been progressed through preliminary architectural planning and is now ready for tender.

Due to the current level of contractual commitments on the primary school building programme it is not possible for my Department to allow this particular project to proceed to tender immediately. A decision on the timing of the tender process will be taken later in the year in the light of expenditure on existing contractual commitments. For this reason it is not possible for me at this stage to give a firm date as to when tenders will be invited. My Department is aware of the accommodation needs at St. Brigid's and will ensure that the project proceeds to construction at the earliest opportunity.
