Business of Joint Committee

I hope everybody had a good break. We are back for the first of many committee meetings, hopefully, in the new year. I ask members to turn off their mobile telephones as they interfere with the sound system. I propose to suspend the sitting for a few minutes to allow the witnesses to be seated before we resume in public session.

Sitting suspended at 1.38 p.m. and resumed at 1.41 p.m.
