Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Bailey. I welcome all attendees to this meeting of the Joint Committee on Employment Affairs and Social Protection, at which we will resume our consideration of the Pensions Amendment (No. 2) Bill 2017. Before I begin, I remind those present to 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 10.43 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.52 a.m.
