Business of Select Committee

I remind members to ensure their mobile phones are switched off. I welcome everybody to our Seanad Special Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

In correspondence, a submission has been received from Medicines for Ireland on Brexit and patients' access to medicines in jeopardy due to delays to the import and export of medicines on the island of Ireland, dated 26 March 2021. I propose that we note this correspondence and come back to it at a later date for potential future meetings. Is that agreed? Agreed.

I propose that we note the draft minutes of our public meeting on 22 March 2021, which was the engagement with officials from the Irish Small and Medium Enterprise Association, ISME, InterTradeIreland, the Confederation of British Industry and the Northern Ireland Retail Consortium. Is that agreed? Agreed.
