Meeting Summary

The Committee met briefly to consider and adopt four outstanding minutes from the previous year.

Meeting report

Mr S Tleane (ANC) drew the attention of the Chairperson that some Members were not present and suggested that the meeting be delayed to allow an appreciable number to add up to the five who were already present and that took about five minutes. He also said that those who were absent and did not apologise must be treated as absentees.

The Chairperson informed Members that she had to attend a meeting with the House Chairperson and that Mr M Cele (ANC) would chair the meeting in her place. The Committee would consider the adoption of several outstanding minutes.
