Business of Joint Committee

I am delighted to welcome our guests here and I thank our members for attending. There are two items I want to address before we move on to today's agenda. On behalf of the committee, I extend our heartfelt condolences to Senator Micheál Carrigy on the recent passing of his mother, Mrs. Eilish Carrigy. I am sure members join me in offering those condolences. May she rest in peace.

I will make a statement on the matter in relation to RTÉ. I note the committee has decided to request a report from RTÉ focusing on two particular matters, one being the particulars of the organisation of the event in question and the other being the measures being undertaken by RTÉ to review the existing Covid-19 guidelines, in light of the report of breaches of same. Following receipt of this report, members will decide how to proceed. Is that agreed? Agreed.
