The arrangement of today's meeting is a meeting with Forfás as part of our first session and an examination of the accounts of Ordnance Survey Ireland, OSI, at noon. Are the minutes of our meeting of 10 October 2013 agreed? Agreed. Do matters arise? No.
We have received correspondence since our meeting on 10 October. No. 3B.1 is correspondence dated 7 October 2013 from Deputy Eoghan Murphy proposing the establishment of a sub-committee to oversee NAMA and related issues. The Deputy is not present today, so we will defer this letter and raise the matter again when he is present to speak on it.
No. 3C.1 is correspondence received on 10 October 2013 from Mr. Martin D. Shanahan, chief executive officer of Forfás, regarding the briefing material for today's meeting, to be noted and published.

Two reports and statements on accounts have been received since our meeting on 10 October, Nos. 4.1 and 4.2, from the National Sports Campus Development Authority and the National Disability Authority. These are to be noted.
Our work programme is being displayed on screen. A meeting has been scheduled with the Department of Social Protection for 12 December to examine Chapters 19 and 20 of the 2012 report of the Comptroller and Auditor General. We will also meet An Garda Síochána on 23 January 2014 to examine Chapter 7 of the 2012 report of the Comptroller and Auditor General. Our meeting next week will be in private session and will deal with the bank stabilisation report and some other matters.
Is there any other business? No. We have agreed the agenda for our meeting on 24 October. A revised copy of the report that we will be dealing with will be circulated tomorrow.
