“But there is no guarantee that any will be built…”

The Northern Ireland Education Minister, Sinn Féin’s Caitriona Ruane, refused to tell the Assembly the details of the outcome of her department’s review of the schools capital build programme last week. 

The BBC reports today that the department has now released the list of the schools whose plans comply fully with departmental policy (34), those who might, with further work, comply with policy (24), and those whose plans do not comply (8).

But as the BBC report also notes

A total of 34 out of 67 schools have been told they comply with policy.

But there is no guarantee that any will be built because the education minister has said there is not enough money, unless extra funding was found.
