Business of Joint Committee

As we have a quorum, we will commence in public session. Apologies have been received from Deputy Fergus O'Dowd and Senator Victor Boyhan. 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 9.34 a.m. and resumed in public session at 9.44 a.m.
