Business of Joint Committee

We are under pressure of time. I think I have spoken to most members to say Dr. Scally and his colleague, Dr. Karin Denton, need to be out of here by 5 p.m. at the latest as they have a flight to catch to the United Kingdom. Officials from the Department of Health will come before the committee at 5 p.m. to brief us on the issues raised yesterday on Committee Stage of the CervicalCheck Tribunal Bill.

I will need to leave at 5 p.m. to be Acting Chairman in the Dáil. I am sure the committee will manage without me, although I know that it will be with great difficulty.

We will do our best.

I understand. It is appreciated.

We will now meet Dr. Scally.
