Business of Joint Committee

Before we begin, I remind members to sit only in the permitted seats and in front of available microphones to ensure they are heard. This is important as not doing so causes serious problems for broadcasting, editorial and sound staff. I also remind members to maintain social distance at all times during and following the meeting. I remind members that this meeting cannot go on for longer than the time scheduled, so may I have agreement that contributions will be limited to five minutes each, to include questions and answers? Is that agreed? Agreed.
