Business of Joint Committee

Chairman

As we have a quorum, we will now begin in public session. We have received apologies from Deputy Sean Crowe and Senator Frank Feighan. Members are requested to ensure that their mobile phones are turned off or switched to flight mode for the duration of the meeting as they interfere with the recording of committee proceedings.

I propose that we now go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters.

The joint committee went into private session at 1.39 p.m and resumed in public session at 1.43 p.m.
