I thank the witnesses and the staff of the HSE for their work. It is a big organisation with a lot of difficult situations and there is obviously always room for improvement. I also thank the Comptroller and Auditor General, Mr. McCarthy, and his staff for attending and assisting in our preparations. I also thank the committee secretariat.

Is it agreed to request that the clerk seek any follow-up information and carry out any actions agreed at today's meeting? Agreed. Is is also agreed that we note and publish the opening statements and briefings for today's meeting? Agreed.

I remind members that it is okay to come back into the committee room. I know some have been complaining for the last year about not being able to come into the room. They can come into the parlour if they feel they can manage things better in here. Sometimes we talk over each other because of the time lag that arises when we are meeting remotely. That is difficult for witnesses and members. I apologise for that. I try to manage it as best I can.
