Business of Joint Committee

We are now in public session. Apologies have been received from Deputy Pringle and Senator Mulherin. I remind members to ensure that their mobile phones are turned off. I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 3.45 p.m., suspended at 4 p.m. and resumed in public session at 4.02 p.m.
