Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputies O'Dowd and Mattie McGrath and Senator Kelleher. I propose we now go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 11.05 a.m., suspended at 11.18 a.m. and resumed in public session at 11.21 a.m.
