Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Róisín Shortall, who is attending Leaders' Questions in the convention centre.

The minutes of today's meeting will agree what was decided in our private session yesterday and confirm that the committee will be writing to the HSE about the issues raised by Ms Blathnaid Nolan in respect of the care of her adult daughter.

There is another issue about which we could write to the National Public Health Emergency Team, NPHET. There are concerns about moving to level 5 and the information that was given to the Government. I suggest that the committee write to NPHET asking for a brief on that matter because the public has concerns about that. As the lead committee on Covid-19, it would be useful for us to have that information if it is available.
