We are now back in public session. This meeting has been convened for the purpose of consideration of the Companies (Amendment) Bill 2019 [Seanad], which was referred to select committee by order of the Dáil on 19 February 2019. I welcome the Minister of State, Deputy Halligan and his officials to the meeting. Before we begin, I ask Members to switch their phones to airplane, safe or flight mode. It is not enough to put them on silent mode as this will cause interference and impact negatively on the broadcasting of these proceedings.
No Committee Stage amendments have been proposed and we intend to conclude Committee Stage today. Is that agreed? Agreed.
