Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan; Ms Margaret Ritchie, MP; Mr. Francie Molloy, MP; Mr. Mickey Brady, MP; and Mr. Pat Doherty, MP.

We will be continuing our examination of the implications of Brexit for the Good Friday Agreement and its institutions. We are to hear from Mr. Dáithí O'Ceallaigh and Mr. Tom Arnold from the Institute for International and European Affairs, but, first, I propose that we go into private session to consider some housekeeping items. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 2.20 p.m. and resumed in public session at 2.55 p.m.
