If any members or witnesses are experiencing any sound or technical issue, will he or she please let us know through the chat function. We have received apologies from Deputy Sean Sherlock and Senator Lynn Ruane. Deputy Jennifer Whitmore is substituting at this meeting for Deputy Holly Cairns.

I remind members who are participating remotely to keep their device on mute until invited to speak. When speaking, I ask members, where possible, to have their camera switched on and to be mindful that we are in public session.

I remind members of the constitutional requirement that members must be physically present within the confines of the place which Parliament has chosen to sit, namely, Leinster House or the Convention Centre Dublin, in order to participate in public meetings. I will not permit a member to participate where he or she is not adhering to this constitutional requirement. Therefore, any member who attempts to participate from outside the precincts will be refused.
