Business of Joint Committee

We have a quorum so will commence the meeting in public session. We will adjourn the meeting for a vote between 2.30 p.m. and 2.35 p.m. for ten minutes or less and shall resume the meeting afterwards. Therefore, I am anxious to get the meeting started.

Draft minutes of the meetings of 17 and 19 December have been circulated. Are the minutes of 17 and 19 December agreed? Agreed. Unless there are matters arising from the minutes we will proceed with the main business of the meeting.
