Business of Joint Committee

I welcome everyone to the meeting of the Joint Committee on Employment Affairs and Social Protection. If members have mobile phones, they might turn them to silent or turn them off. 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 10.39 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.47 a.m.
