Business of Joint Committee

I would like to remind members that in the context of the current Covid-19 restrictions, only the Chairman and staff are present in the committee room. All members must join the meeting remotely from elsewhere within the parliamentary precincts. The secretariat can issue invitations to join the meeting on Microsoft Teams. Members may not participate in the meeting from outside the parliamentary precincts. I ask members to mute their microphones until they are making a contribution and to use the raised hand function to indicate that they wish to contribute. I ask members to note that messages sent to the meeting chat are visible to all participants. Speaking slots will be prioritised for members of the committee.
