I thank Members and witnesses for participating in today's committee meeting in line with the exceptional circumstances. I remind all Members that to participate in the meeting, they must do so only from either the meeting room or remotely from within the Leinster House complex. Should a division occur, any Member participating remotely is required to make his or her way to the meeting room within the normal division time to vote, before returning to his or her original location.

Members and all in attendance are asked to exercise personal responsibility in protecting themselves and others from the risk of contracting Covid-19. They are strongly advised to practise good hand hygiene and they will note every second seat in the committee room has been removed from use to facilitate social distancing. I urge those attending not to move any chair from its current position, and they should always maintain an appropriate level of social distancing during and after the meeting. Masks should be worn during the meeting, except when speaking. I ask for the full co-operation of Members on this matter. As normal, all documentation for the meeting has been circulated on Teams. To date, we have not received any apologies.
