The minister will be aware that, despite the Executive's best efforts to promote second-stage transfer, there remains a widespread concern that GHA is not fully committed to that process. One of the key objectives of the original stock transfer to GHA, along with improving homes and achieving regeneration—which are welcome objectives—was to achieve greater local accountability and control. Therefore, will the minister outline precisely what progress has been made on achieving a key conclusion of a report that was delivered to his predecessor in December 2006, which was that
