1. Cyflwyniad, ymddiheuriadau, dirprwyon a datgan buddiannau
1. Introductions, apologies, substitutions and declarations of interest

Good afternoon. Can I welcome Members and the public to this afternoon's meeting of the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee? Can I remind Members that the meeting is bilingual and therefore, if you require simultaneous translation from Welsh to English, that's available on the headsets via channel 1. If you require amplification, that's also available on the headsets; that's channel 0. We have no scheduled fire alarm today, so, if one does take pace, please follow the directions of the ushers to a safe place. Can I remind Members to switch off mobile phones or put them on silent so they don't interfere with the broadcasting equipment? We have received apologies from Michelle Brown today.  

2. Papur i'w nodi
2. Paper to note

We move on to agenda item 2. We have some papers to note. The first one is actually correspondence from the Assembly's representatives on the Committee of the Regions regarding Wales's future relationship with the Committee of the Regions. Are Members content to note that at this point? I understand that the members are attending the plenary session of the Committee of the Regions on 6 and 7 February. 

Okay. There are no other papers to note at this point in time.

Therefore, I move on to the next item on the agenda, which is to resolve to exclude the public from the remainder of the meeting under Standing Order 17.42 subsection (vi)—or subsection (ix) in this case. Are Members content to do so? 

Therefore we now move into private session for the reminder of today's meeting.
