The Committee considered and adopted as amended minutes dated the 28 February 2012 and 6 March 2012. Spelling and grammatical changes were effected to both sets of minutes. The Committee agreed to in the future forward additions or changes to Committee Minutes to the Committee Secretary before meetings so that changes could be incorporated into minutes. It was hoped that this would save time during meetings when Committee Minutes were being considered. Due to time constraints the Committee was unable to deal with the rest of the issues on the meeting’s agenda.

Mr S Farrow (DA) asked whether it was wise to defer the consideration of the Committee Minutes. He pointed out that in terms of the Parliamentary Rules no Committee would be allowed to go on oversight provided that its committee minutes were completed and adopted. Parliament was apparently strict on the matter. He suggested that the Committee have a meeting the following day on 13 June 2012 for an hour to consider and adopt its outstanding minutes.
Ms M Njobe (COPE) agreed that time should be made to consider and adopt the Committee Minutes.
Mr Khorai (ANC) concurred with the Chairperson that time was of the essence and suggested dealing with the Committee Minutes with speed.
Mr Farrow suggested that in the future members email suggestions and changes to Committee Minutes to the Committee Secretary Mr Jerry Boltina so that changes could be incorporated prior to meetings. In this way the Committee did not have to consider Committee Minutes line by line and effect changes as it presently did.
Ms Nzoma (ANC) supported Mr Farrow’s suggestion. It meant that less time would be spent on considering Committee Minutes and the Committee could spend its time more constructively.
The Committee also considered and adopted as amended minutes dated the 06 March 2012. Spelling and grammatical changes were effected to the minutes. Members also asked Mr Boltina to check some of the facts stated in the Committee Minutes.
Ms C Zikalala (IFP) asked whether the Committee was going to follow Mr Farrow’s suggestion.
The Chairperson confirmed that Mr Farrow’s suggestion was accepted by the Committee. Members would in future forward suggestions and changes on minutes to Mr Boltina henceforth.
Due to time constraints the Committee agreed to suspend the consideration and adoption of the remaining Committee Minutes. Members in the meantime could email Mr Boltina any additions or changes which they wished to make to the current sets of Committee Minutes.
The Chairperson said that Mr Boltina would be in contact with members regarding particulars of the Committee’s upcoming oversight visit to the
He asked whether members would be available to meet the following day, the 13 June 2012 to consider the rest of the issues which could not be completed in the present meeting.
Mr Farrow suggested an alternative that the Committee deal with the outstanding issues when the Committee met on the oversight visit to the
The Chairperson felt it to be a good suggestion and the Committee agreed to it.
The meeting was adjourned.
