Minister Jan O’Sullivan

I propose to take questions 163, 198 and 205 together.

I wish to inform the Deputies that I have been in discussions with all the
education partners, which included Pre-Budget matters.

I met with the Joint Managerial Body which represents all voluntary secondary
schools, including fee charging schools.

I received their Pre-Budget 2015 submissions, which covered the matters raised
by the Deputies.

I am not in a position to engage with the Deputies on what may or may not be in
next week’s budget announcements.
