Apologies have been received from Senators Ó Donnghaile, Currie and Black and Mr. John Finucane, MP.
All Members of the Oireachtas are attending this meeting form their offices within the Leinster House campus. Remote participation is not possible. If there is unwanted feedback, it may be necessary to mute all participants and then the person speaking can unmute his or her microphone. I ask members and guests to mute their microphones until they are contributing.
I rotate the speaking order at every meeting. I propose to call members in the following rotation: Fine Gael, Sinn Féin, Fianna Fáil, Independents, SDLP, Alliance, Sinn Féin, Labour and the Green Party. Is that agreed? Agreed.
