Discussion

The Chairperson informed the Committee that that the month of March would be set aside for appropriations and he encouraged Members to submit suggestions to the procedural officer on the activities of the Committee for the year. He said that various committees, leading up to the State of Province Address (SOPA) 2021, would be visiting Genadendal. The date of 12 February 2021 is penciled for the Committee to visit the Genadendal area for the re-opening of its missionary museum.

Mr Marais suggested that the Committee should visit historical buildings and communities. He reckoned that it was not advisable to visit on the 12th. The whole of Parliament should rather be there on the 17th for SOPA. If Parliament is going to do three visits, other areas that have been visited previously would be unhappy.

The Chairperson said that the visits he is aware of are dated February 12 and 16 and various committees would be using so those dates for their visits. The oversight work of the Committee would be a separate item, just to do justice and see what needs to be done.

Mr Bosman said that the visits would be nothing new because many committees visited Mitchells Plain before SOPA last year. He further asked the Committee to get a detailed report on the processes and procedures followed regarding the sexual harassment report from the Department because the one-page report received by Members was not satisfactory.

The Chairperson indicated that he would write to the Head of Department to get more details.

The meeting was adjourned.
