Business of Joint Committee

I remind members to turn off their mobile phones when attending. Apologies have been received from Deputy Fiona O'Loughlin, who is in Kildare, and Deputy Jan O'Sullivan.

I propose we go into private session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 9.38 a.m. and resumed in public session at 9.48 a.m.
