Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Future Funding of Domestic Water Services
Business of Joint Committee
We are now in public session. Apologies have been received from Deputy Ó Broin who is being substituted by Deputy Cullinane, Senator Grace O'Sullivan who is substituted by Senator Ruane, Senator Coffey who is being substituted by Senator Richmond, and Deputy Willie O'Dea. I also note that Deputy Barry is substituting for Deputy Paul Murphy.
At the request of the broadcasting and recording services, members are asked to ensure that, for the duration of the meeting, their mobile phones are turned off completely or switched to aeroplane, safe or flight mode, depending on the device.
I thank Deputy Heydon.
It is not sufficient for members to put their phones on silent mode as this will maintain the level of interference with the broadcasting system. In accordance with the 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 now propose to go into private session.
