I welcome everyone to the meeting. I remind members to ensure their mobile phones are switched off and to mute their devices unless contributing to the meeting.

We have correspondence to consider. There is a submission to the committee from Chris MacManus, MEP, dated 4 June 2021; a submission regarding EU support to assist Ireland in dealing with the challenge of Brexit from Grace O'Sullivan, MEP, dated 2 June; a submission on the north west rail corridor from Barry Aughey, dated 3 June; and a letter from the committee secretariat regarding the digital parliament programme's committee and meeting module, dated 4 June. I propose that we note the correspondence. Is that agreed? Agreed.

We move to the draft minutes of the meeting of 31 May 2021 on the impact of Brexit on the higher education sector, which was attended by officials from the Irish Universities Association, the Higher Education Authority and the Technological Higher Education Association. Is it agreed to adopt the minutes? Agreed.
