Business of Joint Committee

Vice Chairman

Apologies have been received from Deputies Michael Harty and Anne Rabbitte. I remind members to ensure their mobile phones are switched off as they cause interference with the broadcasting equipment. I propose that we go into private session to deal with housekeeping matters. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 1.40 p.m. and resumed in public session at 1.43 p.m.
