The Chairperson tabled the Committee’s draft programme for the first term but noted that it would only be approved at a later meeting. It was agreed that the Committee would have a workshop on 28 February 2011 where it would define its functions and role. Members would also receive guidance from the Parliamentary Legal Advisors on whether the Committee’s proceedings should be open or closed.
The Chairperson informed Members that the Committee’s draft programme for the first term would be handed out so that they could give their input. The Committee Researcher would then incorporate any suggestions made when drafting the final document. The final programme would be adopted in early February 2011
Mr J Jefferey (ANC) replied that the Committee should rather start by defining its role and functions before finalising the programme. In addition, he proposed that the Parliamentary Legal Advisors (PLA) should be requested to advise the Committee whether its meetings should be open or closed.
Mr J Maake (ANC) explained that the PLA would also be part of the Committee workshop on the 28 February 2010, where the Committee would be defining its role functions and other house keeping rules.
The meeting was adjourned.
