Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from the Chairman, Senator Colette Kelleher, and Deputies Colm Brophy, Marcella Corcoran Kennedy, Martin Ferris and Fiona O'Loughlin. I propose that we now go into private session to deal with housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 11.03 a.m. and resumed in public session at 11.12 a.m.
