Despite some of the problems raised, I have no indication that that will not happen. I think that we are working in the right direction.
I spoke to you the other day about getting a briefing on some issues, and you mentioned the strategy.

As I said, the ALBs have been working for some time almost on a zero-based budgeting approach, so they are already aware of the amount of money they had to spend annually and of the Programme for Government commitments and departmental priorities.
We all have an obligation under section 75 to make sure that, through the provision of public services, in particular, and access and participation, we have regard for disability and that we have the physical access for that to happen.
It provides arts, access to the arts and creativity for people with learning and physical difficulties. There is absolutely no question that I will duck, and I want to ensure that the member and other members are happy that they are asking a question that will not cause a newspaper headline at a time when we are trying to get things resolved.
