EDUCATION PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE
3 November 2006
FURTHER EDUCATION AND TRAINING COLLEGES BILL [B23D-2006]: ADOPTION
Chairperson: Prof S Mayatula (ANC)
Documents handed out
Further Education and Training Colleges Bill [B23C-2006] & [B23D-2006]
Draft Amendments to the Bill
The Committee read through each of the amendments to the Further Education and Training Colleges Bill [B23B-2006], and voted on one by one. The decision to formally vote for the Bill with the amendments, which were minor and technical, was almost unanimous. The DA representative wanted to debate the exclusion of a clause from an earlier version of the Bill but the Chair was firm that the purpose of the meeting was to vote and not to debate as debate and discussion had been the purpose of earlier meetings. .
The Chair read the draft amendments aloud one by one and the Committee gave their assent to them.
Mr G Boinamo (DA) objected to the removal of a clause which meant that the functions, conditions etc of service must not be inferior to those enjoyed by staff before their employment was transferred. This clause was from Chapter 4 of an earlier version of the Bill and, he said, served the interests of lecturers and staff very well.
The Chair would not allow him to read the preferred clause to the Committee as he said Mr Boinamo had had ample opportunity to do so at previous meetings and the purpose of the current meeting was only to vote formally. In any event, said the Chair, the employees’ interests were equally well served by the insertion of Clause 54.
The Chair then read out the formal Motion of Desirability, which the Committee agreed to. He noted that the Committee voted unanimously in favour of the Bill, with amendments.
The meeting was adjourned.
