Business of Joint Committee

I welcome members to this meeting of the Joint Committee on Employment Affairs and Social Protection. I remind members that if they have mobile phones, they might turn them off. I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters and then we will return to public session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 10.08 a.m., suspended at 10.23 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.27 a.m.
