The cost of remedial works at dozens of schools with building defects has reached €40 Million.

Repairs are still being carried out at the schools built by Western Building Systems.

Around 40 schools around the country were identified as having structural defects following a review last year.

Remediation work has been completed at 14 of them - and is due to start on another 8 in the new year.

The Education Minister will tell the cabinet this morning the cost of the work so far is €40 Million.

That includes the cost for initial assessments of the schools, precautionary measures like scaffolding and fencing, repair works and fire safety upgrades.

The Irish Independent reports that a request for more funding won't be made at cabinet - with the money being taken out of the existing school building budget.
