Business of Joint Committee

I thank Senator Kelleher for accommodating the commencement of our meeting today. I remind members to switch off mobile phones as they interfere with recording 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 9.04 a.m. suspended at 9.22 a.m. and resumed in public session at 9.27 a.m.
