Mr. McDonagh then continued by saying that the more difficult issue was the demand for social and affordable housing, and that resolving that will have an impact on renters and the rental sector. Almost everyone is now in the private rental sector, including many social housing applicants through the rental accommodation scheme, RAS, and similar options. We need to build more social and affordable housing. That brings me to my point, namely, if NAMA is not putting enough social and affordable housing stock into the system through what it does, then NAMA becomes part of the problem itself. That is why I am interested in that breakdown. Will Mr. McDonagh give that to me? Does he understand the point that I am making?
