Apologies have been received from Deputies Ó Caoláin and Ned O'Keeffe. The first item on the agenda is the minutes of the meeting of 9 June 2005. Are they agreed? Agreed. Are there any matters arising? No.
Members have been circulated with the schedule of correspondence. The first item is details of the sub-committee on EU scrutiny of 2 June. The proposed action is to note that none of the proposals warrant scrutiny. Is that agreed? Agreed
The next item is a letter from the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement regarding NIB. We asked for that letter so I suggest we note it. No further action is necessary.
The next item is a letter from the Department of Finance regarding the ongoing review of certain tax reliefs. As I indicated at the previous meeting, we will discuss this matter in September. At that stage, we had received a significant number of submissions from the Department of Finance but yesterday the Department decided it would make public all 86 submissions. The website can be checked for the submissions but hard copies can be circulated to members.
