Business of Select Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Bailey. On behalf of the select committee, I express our sympathy to her.

Later today the committee is scheduled to meet representatives from the Department of Health and the HSE for a briefing on budget management and the control of health expenditure. Before doing so, we will go into private session to deal with some committee business.

The select committee went into private session at 2.05 p.m. and resumed in public session at 4.15 p.m.
