Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Fergus O'Dowd and Senators Collete Kelleher and Jennifer Murnane O'Connor. I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters.

The joint committee went into private session at 11.04 a.m., suspended at 11.16 a.m., and resumed in public session at 11.17 a.m.
