The first item on today's agenda is the minutes of the meeting of 21 September last, which have been circulated. Are the minutes agreed? Agreed.
The Irish Tyre Industry Association had been invited to make a presentation at today's meeting. Regrettably, its key officials are unable to attend due to a prior commitment in the United Kingdom. Nonetheless, the association would like an opportunity to appear before the committee as soon as possible. Is it agreed to set a new date for such a meeting, given that today did not suit the association from a business point of view? Agreed.
The next item on our agenda is correspondence. Some items of correspondence have been held over from earlier meetings. I understand that members are anxious to revisit certain items of correspondence, statutory instruments and circulars which were not dealt with comprehensively at our last meeting due to time pressures. Members are free to discuss them on this occasion as we reach them. The first item of correspondence is a departmental briefing on pyrite, which is an issue that has been raised by Deputy Terence Flanagan. I propose that we keep the issue on our work programme. Is that agreed?
