Eastern Cape Oversight Report [available at Tabled Committee Reports once adopted]
Prior to the adoption of the Committee Programme, Members highlighted the need for two separate debates in the House, one for agriculture and the other for land affairs. She pledged to raise the matter with the Minister herself.

Adoption of First Term Programme
The Chair noted that the First Term Programme was adopted, subject to further amendments.
Members suggested that two separate debates be held in the House, viz. one for the agriculture and one for land affairs. The two were very different portfolio’s, and the time allocated was insufficient for both to be dealt with adequately in one timeslot.
The Chair took this into consideration and stated that she would put it to the Minister
Consideration of the Eastern Cape Oversight Report
