Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Senators Kelleher and Murnane O'Connor. Senator Gerry Horkan will be substituting for Senator Murnane O'Connor. I propose that the committee goes into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 11.08 a.m. and resumed in public session at 11.32 a.m.
