I ask everybody to turn off their mobile telephones. Do not just put them on silent mode, as they affect the public address system. The first item on the agenda is the minutes of the meeting of 19 January 2010, which have been circulated. Are they agreed? Agreed. The matter arising is the visit to Cork on Thursday and Friday. The detailed schedule has been given to the members who are travelling to examine the flooding and the Inniscarra dam. Is that agreed? Agreed.
The first item of correspondence received since the last meeting is No. 2010/720, a European world newsletter. We note that No. 2010/721 is from the Institute of Public Health regarding a seminar on the health effects of climate change on 25 February in St. Andrew's Street, Dublin. The committee will not be sending anybody, but members are free to attend individually if they wish. No. 2010/722 is the GLOBE international newsletter, which we note.
The next item is from the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, an interim value for money and policy review of the Department's rental accommodation scheme. We will note that but we will include it in our work programme. We will be coming back to our work programme.
The next item is No. 2010/724 and is from Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan and Senator David Norris on solicitors acting for the relatives of the signatories of the 1916 Proclamation, regarding a request to allow them to meet the committee to discuss the designation of sites at Dublin's Moore Street as a national monument to the 1916 Rising. I understood there was a presentation in the House last week, in the AV centre.
