Business of Select Committee

As we have a quorum, we will commence in public session. No apologies have been received. Today we will meet the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform on the Summer Economic Statement 2019. Before we meet him, I propose we go into private session to deal with some committee business.

The joint committee went into private session at 1.40 p.m. and resumed in public session at 2.05 p.m.
