Business of Select Committee

Good morning. We are now in public session.

At the request of the broadcasting and recording services, members are requested to ensure that for the duration of the meeting, their mobile phones are turned off completely or switched to aeroplane, safe or flight mode depending on the device. It is not sufficient to put phones in silent mode as this will maintain the level of interference with the broadcasting system.

In accordance with standard procedures agreed by the Committee on Procedures and Privilege for paperless committees, all documentation has been circulated to members on the document database. I propose we go into private session to deal with correspondence and certain other matters.

The committee went into private session at 10.34 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.40 a.m.
