Van Der Walt, Ms D to ask the Minister of Basic Education
Whether her department has the delivery notes in respect of the delivery of (a) workbooks and (b) textbooks delivered to each province in the 2015 academic year; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?
Workbooks are delivered directly to each public school. The National Department of Basic Education is in possession of electronic copies of proof of delivery notes for all schools that received their workbook consignments for volume 1 and volume 2 for the 2015 academic year.
The National Department of Basic Education does not deliver textbooks to schools. The responsibility is that of Provincial Departments of Education who are in possession of the proof of deliveries.
