No apologies have been received. Unfortunately, the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Deputy McConalogue, is delayed at a Cabinet meeting. If members are agreeable, I propose to suspend the meeting for an hour until 4.30 p.m. when the Minister will be available. Are members agreeable to that?

For an hour?

From the update I got from the secretariat, I would say we will be waiting for an hour for the Minister to arrive. There is no point in suspending the meeting for a half hour and then resuming and having to suspend again. Is that okay with Deputy Martin Browne?

That is okay with me.

Sitting suspended at 3.33 p.m. and resumed at 4.30 p.m.
