It was a Fianna Fáil commitment in that regard. I have heard the Deputy speak passionately about this and I acknowledge that he supports such action. There are a few amendments I would like considered as well but the bottom line is that an unsuccessful, disastrous policy is being brought to an end by a Fianna Fáil Minister with responsibility for housing. The House should at least acknowledge that. We made a commitment and we are following through on it. I hope what comes after represents a much more democratic, transparent and public-friendly model that people can buy into and feel their voices are heard. I believe it will. People should believe they can influence developments that take place in their communities and beyond.
