Are the minutes of the 29 October meeting agreed? Agreed. I shall now turn to items of correspondence. There are items from members in respect of the work schedule. Senator Currie would like to make a point.

On the revision of the work plan, I see that one of the titles has been removed, namely, the reconciliation legacy issues and dealing with the past. I feel this needs to be a headline within the work plan for the issues such as the Stormont House Agreement. It is a sensitive year. Reconciliation is an ongoing priority for all of us and it should be a cause in its own right.

We must move to the next item as the witnesses are now online. Senator Currie will be first in the discussion afterwards on this issue.

Yes. If that is okay. I am just trying to use our time, as we are limited to two hours with no movement or choice in that.
