The first item on our agenda is the draft minutes of the meeting of 6 July which have been circulated. Are they agreed? Agreed.
Two items of correspondence were held over from the last meeting. The Irish Tyre Industry Association requests a meeting to discuss a producer responsibility initiative for the disposal of tyres. We will send a copy to the Department and receive a response therefrom. We will hold the correspondence on our work programme in case we decide to invite the association to attend.
The second item of correspondence is from Mr. Cian Ó Lionáin of the private rented housing and building standards section of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. It concerns the pyrite issue which was raised in previous correspondence. We will postpone consideration of the correspondence until our next meeting. Some of the Fine Gael members raised this matter, but I have not had an opportunity to study it.
The next item of correspondence from Mr. Gerry Mongey of the Canadian Embassy concerns various environmental sites in Canada. Is it agreed that we note this correspondence? Agreed.
No. 926A relates to the water conservation and waste management seminars. Is it agreed that we note this correspondence? Agreed.
No. 927 concerns the Joint Committee on European Scrutiny. Is it agreed that we note this correspondence? Agreed.
No. 928 is the Globe Europe newsletter. Is it agreed that we note this correspondence? Agreed.
The next item is an e-mail to Deputy Bannon from the EIPA. It is a reminder about upcoming events on environmental policy and climate change. Is it agreed to note this correspondence?
