By what date will she verify figures given on the number of claims (a) lodged, (b) settled and (c) outstanding on labour tenants land claims; (2) whether a credible database exists which can verify such numbers; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?
(1)(a),(b),(c) The verification process on the applications received was undertaken in 2001 by the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development (DALRRD) through the appointment of service providers, HSK Simpson and Lima.
