I want to skip on to the Housing Finance Agency, HFA. The loans to the HFA have decreased each year between 2013 and 2017. The decrease in 2016 was €290 million. Why would that have happened? We require significant income. Is it off balance sheet? Is that where the move is? What is the reason for that?
