Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputies Casey, Ó Broin and O'Dowd. Deputy Ó Broin is delayed at another meeting and will be replaced by Deptuy Ellis until he arrives, and Deputy O'Dowd is chairing another meeting. I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 9.05 a.m., suspended at 9.10 a.m. and resumed in public session at 9.12 a.m.
