The Convener (Gillian Martin)

Good morning, and welcome to the third meeting in 2023 of the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee. I have received apologies from Tess White.

Before we commence this morning’s meeting, we have a change of membership to inform everyone about. Carol Mochan has left the committee and will be replaced by Paul Sweeney. I thank Carol Mochan for all the work that she has done on the committee in the past couple of years and wish her all the best in whatever is next for her committee-wise.

Our first item today is to welcome Paul Sweeney to the committee and to invite the new member to declare any interests that are relevant to the committee’s remit.

Thank you, convener, for your kind welcome. [Inaudible.]

We will get Paul’s microphone unmuted and ask him to declare his interests again.

Sorry, convener. Thank you for the welcome to the committee. I have two relevant interests to declare: I am a member of the GMB and Unite the union.

Thank you very much.
