Four of the six people who Mr Magill said in his provisional findings should be surcharged have claimed it would be a breach of natural justice for him to be involved in further inquiries into the policy of council house sales known as Building Stable Communities (LGC, April 11).
Mr Magill has asked the commission to decide if he should stand down.
A commission spokesman said: 'We will have to go through everything with a fine-toothed comb. We are some way off. It is high profile, but more importantly it is very complicated.'
