Other Committee business
Invitation: Second E-Participation and Local Democracy Symposium
The Committee had been invited to attend the Second E-Participation and Local Democracy Symposium in London on 28-29 February 2008.

Mr Adams had forwarded the letter to the House Chairperson, expressing the urgency for the National Parliament to be there. The Speaker of the Gauteng Legislature would be one of the participants. He had asked permission for seven Members of the Committee plus staff, legal support, the Researcher and the Committee Secretary to attend. Political approval was still awaited. Preference would be given to those Members who attended meetings regularly.

Committee meetings
Mr A Moseki (ANC, North West) was concerned that the Committee’s meetings clashed with other Committees, creating problems.

Mr Adams responded that when the Committee Secretaries got together to plan the meeting times there was no programme, but it appeared at that time that other Committees did not meet in the afternoons.

It was suggested this be brought to the attention of the Chief Whip.

Mr M Mzizi (IFP, Gauteng) concurred.

The meeting was adjourned.
