Apologies have been received from Deputy Eoin Ó Broin. I am delighted Deputy Dessie Ellis is substituting for him. Apologies have also been received from Senator Paudie Coffey.

At the request of the broadcasting and recording services, members are requested to ensure that, for the duration of the meeting, their mobile telephones are turned off completely or switched to airplane, safe or flight mode, depending on the device. It is not sufficient for members to put their mobiles on silent mode as this will maintain a level of interference for the broadcasting system.

In accordance with standard procedures agreed by the Committee on Procedure and Privileges for paperless committees, all documentation for the meeting has been circulated to members on the document database.

I propose we now go into private session. Is that agreed? Agreed.

The joint committee went into private session at 9.32 a.m. and resumed in public session at 9.40 a.m.
