Welcome to the Social Security Committee’s ninth meeting in 2017. Good morning, cabinet secretary; I hope that you are not too out of breath from your arrival. I remind everyone to turn mobile phones and other devices off or to silent mode, so that they do not disrupt the meeting.
Apologies have been received from Mark Griffin. I welcome Richard Leonard to his first meeting of the committee and invite him to declare any relevant interests.
Thank you, convener. I have no relevant interests to declare.
