Joint Oireachtas Committee on Gender Equality
Business of Joint Committee
Apologies have been received Senator Higgins. Before we begin, I note that members have the option of being physically present in the committee room or join the meeting via Microsoft Teams from the Leinster House offices, as some are this morning. Members may not participate from outside the parliamentary precincts. If joining on Teams, I ask members to mute their microphones when not speaking and use the raise-hand function to indicate. To limit the risk of spreading Covid-19, we encourage members, visitors and witnesses to continue to wear face masks when moving around the campus and when they are in close proximity to one another and to be respectful of public health guidelines.
