 92. Mr. O'Connor Information on Charlie O'Connor Zoom on Charlie O'Connor  asked the Minister for Education and Science Information on Noel Dempsey Zoom on Noel Dempsey  the position regarding the need for additional-refurbished accommodation at Bishop Shanahan national school, Orwell Park, Dublin 6W. [18639/02]

Minister for Education and Science (Mr. N. Dempsey): Information on Noel Dempsey Zoom on Noel Dempsey My Department has an extensive primary school building programme under way at present, details of which are available on my Department's website at In view of the extensive nature of the programme, my Department has no plans at present to start architectural planning for further major primary school building projects. My Department will be reviewing the position in the light of the allocation to be made for the primary building programme in the 2003 Estimates. In the meantime, the board of management of Bishop Shanahan national school should ensure that essential health and safety issues at the school are attended to. They should therefore continue to use the devolved grant for minor works and if the cost of any works of an emergency nature exceeds the amount available under the devolved grant, they may apply to my Department's building unit for grant-aid.
