I apologise for interrupting Mr Haughey’s flow and endorse everything he has said. Does the Member agree that the appropriate Committee to take such evidence would be the Committee to be set up to scrutinise the work of the Department of Agriculture and that that highlights the necessity of assigning the Committee portfolios even while the Assembly is in shadow mode? If the Assembly is going to get into full gear, these portfolios should be assigned as soon as possible.
