We are resuming in public session with the business of the committee. This morning we dealt with the reopening of Garda stations and Chapter 12 of the Comptroller and Auditor General's report dealing with the management of ancillary services at the Garda College in Templemore. We also had a discussion about the unit established by the Garda to deal with the Charleton tribunal.
We will turn now to the other items on our agenda. Are the minutes of the meeting on 9 November agreed? Agreed. We will have the minutes of the meeting on 16 November next week. We will come to the matters arising in our work programme so I will proceed to correspondence.
I will be very brief on the first items of correspondence which were in respect of today's meeting. It is a formality. No. 939A is from the office of the Garda Commissioner and is an update from Mr. Niall Kelly on the audit of cash and general management of the Garda College restaurant and shop. We will note and publish that, even though we discussed it today. Nos. 939A and 940A were in connection with the discussion with the representatives of the Garda Síochána today. We will publish those items now.
No. 941A is the opening statement for today's meeting from the acting Garda Commissioner. We will publish that.
No. 943A is the opening statement for today's meeting from the Secretary General of the Department of Justice and Equality. We will publish that.
No. 944A is correspondence dated 22 November 2017 from the acting Garda Commissioner which we dealt with at this morning's meeting so we will publish that.
Category B is correspondence from Accounting Officers and other items for publication. No. 890B, dated 8 November 2017, is from Mr. Fred McBride, chief executive of Tusla, providing follow-up information to our meeting on 19 October. He has provided a comprehensive and extensive reply to many of the issues we raised. We note and publish that. Members are free to discuss and use the large amount of useful information in the document.
