We have received apologies from Senator David Norris, whom I believe is progressing well following his surgery. We continue to wish him well. We sent a letter expressing our good wishes and received an acknowledgement.

I congratulate Ms Deirdre Clune on her success in the European Parliament elections. I also congratulate Senator Lorraine Higgins, a member of this committee who also did really well. As she was not successful on this occasion, we will have her back again. I congratulate her and Ms Clune for putting their names forward for the European Parliament elections. We will obviously miss Ms Clune, but her election represents progress.

The draft minutes of the meeting of 14 May have been circulated. Are they agreed? Agreed.
