I remind members to turn off their mobile phones completely as they may interfere with the broadcasting and recording equipment, even when left in silent mode.
The minutes of the meeting of 30 January have been circulated. Are they agreed to? Agreed.
We will now deal with correspondence. No. 2019/397 is an email about the international transport forum to be held in Leipzig. It is proposed that the Chairman, one other member and one official attend. Is that agreed? Agreed.
The next items are No. 2019/398(a), (b) and (c). No. 2019/398(a) is a communication I received via email from the office of the Minister of State, Deputy Jim Daly, about rural taxi proposals. There is also a letter from the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy Ross, regarding a proposal to make transport services available in rural Ireland. There is an earlier communication which Deputy Troy brought before the committee at the last meeting. Based on that message, would it be in order for the Minister, representatives of the National Transport Authority and other parties to appear before the committee on 27 February?
