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

I welcome members of the public and Members to this afternoon's meeting of the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee. I will do our usual housekeeping. Can I remind Members that the meeting is bilingual, and therefore headphones can be used for simultaneous translation from Welsh to English? That's on channel 1. They can also be used for amplification if that's required, and that's on channel 0. Can I remind members to turn their mobile phones or any other electronic equipment off or to put them on silent so that they don’t interfere with the broadcasting equipment? There's no scheduled fire alarm this afternoon, so, if one does occur, please follow the directions of the ushers to a safe location. Do any Members wish to declare an interest at this point in time on the business of today? We've received apologies from Delyth Jewell and Alun Davies, and no substitutes have been identified.

2. Papurau i’w nodi
2. Papers to note

Moving on to item 2, which is papers to note, we've received three items here. Paper 1 is written evidence received from Dr Jack Simson Caird in relation to the scrutiny of UK-wide common policy frameworks. Are Members content to note that written evidence?

The second paper is a paper on international agreements by Ricardo Pereira. Are Members content to note that evidence?

And the third one is a response from the Counsel General and Brexit Minister to the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee regarding Wales’s changing constitution, and where he responds to seven questions from the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee. Are Members content to note that at this point in time?
