Business of Joint Committee

I welcome everyone to the meeting. Before I begin I shall make the usual announcement and ask everyone to switch off their phones completely or put them on flight mode as they affect the recording equipment.

I propose that we go into private session to deal with some housekeeping matters before returning to public session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 10.05 a.m. and resumed in public session at 10.25 a.m.
