Business of Joint Committee

As we have a quorum, we will commence the meeting in public session. You are all welcome to this meeting of the Joint Committee on Employment Affairs and Social Protection. Before I begin, I would remind members to please turn off their mobile phones. 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 9.56 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.03 a.m.
