DÁIL QUESTION addressed to the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform (Deputy Paschal Donohoe)
by Deputy Clare Daly
for ORAL ANSWER on 31/05/2016
To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his discussions with the Department of Education and Skills regarding what is described in a briefing document for the new Minister for Education and Skills as ‘woefully inadequate’ capital funding for schools and regarding steps to address this funding crisis.
I understand that the assessment included in the briefing document referred to in the Deputy’s question refers to the capital funding position for Third Level rather than capital funding for schools.
