Death of Member of Staff: Expression of Sympathy.

Apologies have been received from Deputies Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin and Catherine Murphy. I know members will join me as Chairman in offering our sympathy to the family of Ms Sandra Hogan who was the clerk of this committee until a few short years ago. Ms Hogan had not been well in the past two years and passed away at the weekend. The committee offers its condolences to her husband, Chris, three small children, Sophie, Sarah and Stephanie, and her mother, brothers and sisters. Ms Hogan served with us very efficiently until she became ill.
