Vice Chairman (Deputy Glennon): We welcome the representatives from the Pioneer Total Abstinence Association, namely, Fr. Michael Mac Gréil SJ, chairperson of the board of management; Mr. Shane Kitson, president, and Mr. Padraic Naughten, chief executive officer; the representatives from the Vintners Federation, namely, Mr. Seamus O'Donoghue, president; Mr. Tadg O'Sullivan, chief executive officer, and their colleagues who will speak, in the context of our forthcoming report, on the inclusion of alcohol in the national drugs strategy.

I invite our visitors to introduce themselves and proceed with the principal speaker from each delegation, following which I will take questions from members. Before the representatives commence their contributions, I advise them that while members enjoy parliamentary privilege, the same privilege does not extend to them.
