Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Dara Murphy.

And from Deputy Heydon. He may arrive late as he is attending another meeting.

I thank the Senator.

I propose that we go into private session to deal with some matters before resuming in public session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 1.35 p.m. and resumed in public session at 1.45 p.m.
