Business of Select Committee

Apologies have been received from Deputy Jonathan O'Brien. Today, the committee will hold a pre-budget scrutiny session with representatives of Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Chambers Ireland. We will also have a meeting with Screen Producers Ireland as part of our scrutiny of tax expenditures. Before we go into that, we will go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters.

The select committee went into private session at 12.15 p.m. and resumed in public session at 12.20 p.m.
