Business of Joint Committee

We are in public session. Apologies have been received from Deputy Imelda Munster. I propose we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 5.10 p.m. and resumed in public session at 5.41 p.m.

When the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation was before the committee on Wednesday, 23 October, delivering her opening statement on Brexit preparations, she referred to the €45 million transition fund "for firms with fewer than ten employees". It should have read "for firms with more than ten employees." The Minister wishes to amend the record accordingly.
