Business of Select Committee.

Apologies have been received from Deputy Cregan. I thank the Vice Chairman, Deputy Healy-Rae, for chairing the meeting of the select committee last week. It was much appreciated. Members should be aware that mobile phones must be turned off completely, not left in silent mode. Incoming calls cause vibrations which adversely affect the broadcasting transmission. I ask all members to respect this instruction by turning off their mobile phones completely for the duration of the meeting.

And blackberries.

I thank our high-tech Minister.
