The Chairperson suggested that members may need more time to read consider these Committee Reports before adopting it. She said that it was important that members were happy with the reports, and delaying the adoption of these reports would give the committee an opportunity to look at those SETAs (Section Education and Training Authorities) that had really under-performed.
Mr Anthony agreed that Members needed more time to go through the documents.

The Committee resolved to postpone any decision on adoption of these reports.
Noting the small number of members that had attended the meeting, the Chairperson conveyed her view that it was important that Members attended the Committee's meetings. However she did note the challenges faced by Members in dividing time between Parliament and party particularly in the run up to local elections.
