Alcohol Marketing: Discussion
Joint Committee on Health and Children Debate
Thursday, 17th November 2011

 
Witnesses are protected by absolute privilege in respect of the evidence they give to the joint committee. If they are directed by it to cease giving evidence on a particular matter and continue to so do, they are entitled thereafter only to qualified privilege in respect of their evidence. They are directed that only evidence connected with the subject matter of these proceedings is to be given and asked to respect the parliamentary practice to the effect that, where possible, they do not criticise or make charges against a person or persons or an entity by name or in such a way as to make him, her or it identifiable. Members are reminded of the long-standing parliamentary practice to the effect that they do not comment on, criticise or make charges against a person outside the Houses or an official by name or in such a way as to make him or her identifiable.
 
The committee’s practice has been to invite delegates to make their presentations, after which questions are taken from members in groups of three. I invite Mr. McCumiskey to begin.
