Business of Joint Committee

Clerk to the Committee

In the absence of the Chairman and the Vice Chairman, the first item of business is the nomination of an Acting Chairman. May we have nominations for the position?

I propose Senator Noone.

I second that proposal.

Clerk to the Committee

As there are no other nominations, I ask Senator Noone to take the Chair.

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 1.05 p.m. and resumed in public session at 1.20 p.m.
