Draft Committee Annual report 2006
Mr A Ainslie (ANC) suggested the Committee look at improving the format and style of the Report. He alerted Members to the fact that some of the pages in the report were not put in the correct order and some were placed upside down. The problem must be corrected before the Report was distributing to the public.
The Chair interjected by saying that the Committee section team was yet to edit the Report and make changes, where appropriate. He noted that the Committee adopted the Report, with amendments.
He announced that the Minister of Science and Technology would not be able to attend the Committee’s end of year meeting as planned, as he would be visiting Switzerland. That meeting would thus be postponed till 17 January 2007, when Parliament opened for the new year.
The Chair Congratulated Ms Z Jansen, Committee Secretary, on the high quality of work she had produced. The Members agreed.
