Committee programme 2023
The Committee Secretariat, Ms Marcelle Williams, presented the tentative programme for the 1st and 2nd term of next year. She highlighted that the programme was only tentative because she had not received the final NCOP programme with its confirmed dates therefore it was likely to change. The dates were approximates depending on when the Committee would usually do the activities.
Members adopted the proposed programme for both the first and second terms.
Mr E Nchabeleng (ANC, Limpopo) said it was important to engage the embassies regarding the Committee’s foreign study visits so they could advise on the dates.
The Chairperson gave assurance that the staff members had done their duties and the staff was hands-on in making the visit happen.
She informed Members that she would give a statement on the Children’s Amendment Bill in Parliament; she thanked the Members for their hard work and for finishing the Bill in time. There were two bills that had to be finalised in the coming year.
The Committee Secretariat reminded Members that the Committee had been sent a referral jointly with the Portfolio Committee on Social Development to endorse a recommended list for an appeals tribunal which was a process previously done by the Department. The new process required the Department get two endorsements by committees of Parliament. The Department had done the interviews and had a recommended candidate that the two committees would endorse. The briefing of the two committees was proposed for 30 November, where they would also be given the list of candidates.
The meeting was adjourned.
