Apologies have been received from Deputies Maureen O'Sullivan, Brendan Smith and Sean Sherlock and Senator Mark Daly. As I said at the last meeting, we do not have Northern Ireland MPs present because the Westminster Parliament has been dissolved. We will not have any Northern Ireland members until 8 June.
Today, we will hear from Mr. Mark Bassett, barrister-at-law, and Professor Colin Harvey, Queen's University of Belfast. They will discuss voting rights in Northern Ireland.
I propose that we go into private session to deal with housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.
