I ask all members and witnesses to ensure their mobile phones are switched off for the duration of the meeting. The minutes of the meeting held on 17 May 2006 have been circulated. Are they agreed? Agreed.
The joint committee has another meeting at 2 p.m. with a delegation from the LTO-Nederland, which is equivalent to the IFA and other farming organisations, to exchange views on agriculture. To allow people time to have lunch this meeting will be suspended at 1 p.m. sharp. Is that agreed? Agreed.
I have another appointment I cannot postpone in the afternoon. The Vice-Chairman is also unable to attend this afternoon's meeting. Is it agreed that Deputy Ó Fearghaíl will take over the Chair in the afternoon? Agreed.
