Businesss of Joint Committee

As we have a quorum, we will commence the meeting. We are now in public session. Before we begin, I remind members to make sure their mobile phones are turned off. I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 3.55 p.m. and resumed in public session at 4.20 p.m.
