My Department engages with the organisation referred to in relation to a range of issues of common interest to the Department and the local government sector. While the internal operations of the organisation, including internal groups and sub-committees, are a matter for the organisation itself, I understand that the work of the sub-group referred to is progressing well. My Department is engaging with the sub-group in relation to the development of a sustainable funding approach to housing stock maintenance and repairs and this will continue according as the sub-group’s work evolves further.
