Business of Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Maria Bailey and Senator Gerald Nash. Members are welcome to the meeting of the committee and I ask that they please turn off mobile phones if they have them. I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters before returning to public session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 10.10 a.m., suspended at 10.20 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.22 a.m.
