Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade
Business of Joint Committee
On the minutes, I raised previously a reply from the Department about the issue of Members of the Oireachtas having mobile phone numbers for ambassadors which seems to be a State secret. Could someone give us a written reply?
Senator Daly must raise that on any other business at the end. That is not on the minutes. I will take it off him at the end of the meeting. Are the minutes agreed? Agreed. Unless there are matters arising from these minutes, we will proceed with the main business of the meeting.
I will give Senator Daly an opportunity to raise that issue under correspondence. There is no problem whatsoever but I do not want to get into the business of the meeting at this stage. We have a guest waiting and I want to bring her in and get the meeting started. On the minutes, I call Senator Michael Mullins.
That was dealt with. We will get back to the Minister's office to ensure that any unanswered questions on which the Minister was to revert will be forwarded to us in writing. The Senator and other members may have other questions that were not answered.
