Business of Joint Committee

Apologies have been received from the Chairman, Deputy Bailey, and Senator Grace O'Sullivan. Deputy Cullinane will be substituting for Deputy Ó Broin for part of the meeting. 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 9.10 a.m. and resumed in public session at 9.20 a.m.
