I call the meeting to order. Apologies have been received from Deputies Alan Farrell and Michael McGrath. I welcome the Minister of State with special responsibility for the NewERA project, Deputy Fergus O'Dowd, and his officials. The purpose of this meeting is to consider the National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Bill 2014 on Committee Stage. The Bill was referred to the select sub-committee by Dáil Éireann on 29 May 2014.
I understand the Minister of State must be in the Dáil Chamber at some stage.
