(1)Whether the section 71 reports from any municipalities indicated that they had invested funds with VBS Mutual Bank, or any other mutual bank, prior to October 2016; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) in each case where such indications were found, was any action was taken by the National Treasury; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details in each case?

Reply:

1. Yes - As part of the quarterly Section 71 publications municipalities are required to submit the status of their investment register together with the detail of each investment made. These investment lists are published per municipality as part of the quarterly Section 71 results and can be accessed at:

http://mfma.treasury.gov.za/Media_Releases/s71/Pages/default.aspx

2. The Section 71 publication consists of the financial and conditional grant information of 257 municipalities. The publication also covers 21 different conditional grants and additional information in different dimensions to cater for a wide variety of stakeholders such as Parliament, Municipal councils, lenders, rating agencies and the general public. With respect to investments, municipalities reported on 2 563 investment instruments with various banks.

While the National Treasury collects, consolidates and publishes quarterly summaries in various financial dimensions for all municipalities, in terms of Section 151(3) of the Constitution, the municipal council remains the final accountable institution. This is to ensure that the information reported is used for management purposes and account to the respective municipal councils.

Considering the amount of data lines reported, the investments associated with the VBS Mutual Bank got absorbed in the national aggregation process. Section 13 of the MFMA empowers the Minister of Finance to prescribe a framework within which municipalities may, amongst others, invest money not immediately required. Such a framework was provided in the Municipal Investment Regulations which sets out a list of permitted investments municipalities may invest municipal funds. In terms of Regulation 6, municipalities may invest funds only in banks registered in terms of the Banks Act. The Venda Building Society Mutual Bank (VBS) is not registered under the Banks Act of 1990, it was never envisaged that municipalities (Municipal managers and CFOs) would deliberately break the law in their choices of where they invest. To address this issue, the National Treasury has now, as part of the mSCOA reform improved the reporting on investment information to only be linked to registered banks aligned to Regulation 6.

Whether the (a) foreign borrowing limits, (b) further foreign borrowing limits, (c) domestic borrowing limits and (d) further domestic borrowing limits were granted to any public entity (i) in the 2017-18 financial year and (ii) since 1 April 2018; if not, in each specified case, why not; if so, in each specified case, (aa) what is the name of the public entity, (bb) what was the value of the (aaa) foreign and/or domestic borrowing limit and (bbb) extension of the foreign and/or domestic borrowing limit and (cc) what is the current total foreign and/or domestic borrowing limit?

Reply:

(a), (b), (c) and (d)

In the 2017/18 financial year, foreign borrowing limits were granted to the Central Energy Fund (CEF), the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), Denel and Transnet.

  • CEF’s foreign borrowing limit was for R3 billion and this is set to expire in the 2021/22 financial year. The foreign borrowing limit was for the holding company and its subsidiaries for working capital purposes given the high working capital requirements of the industry.
  • DBSA’s foreign borrowing limit was for the entity to access more funds from foreign lenders to extend loans and advances in SA and the SADC region to execute its mandate of facilitating and supporting infrastructure development in Southern Africa. The amounts approved for the DBSA was R19.7 billion for the 2017/18 financial year, R22.6 billion for the 2018/19 financial year and R26 billion for the 2019/20 financial year.
  • Denel’s foreign borrowing limit was approved at R535.3 million for the 2017/18 financial year, with the amount reducing by R100 million every year. The limit is valid for 3 years from the 2017/18 financial year. The approval for a foreign borrowing limit for Denel was to allow the company’s subsidiary (Denel Aerostructures) to continue executing a major contract given the high working capital requirements of the project.
  • Transnet’s foreign borrowing limit was approved for 1 year up to 31 March 2019 for a total amount of R81 billion. The approval of the limit was to enable Transnet to execute its funding plan as proposed in its corporate plan to execute its market demand strategy, which entailed sourcing funds from domestic and foreign lenders.

Since 1 April 2018 up to 30 September 2018, Rand Water’s borrowing limit request (domestic and foreign) and Eskom’s foreign borrowing limit request were granted.

  • Rand Water’s borrowing limit was approved to accommodate the high capital expenditure requirements over the next three years, which will be funded through internally generated cash and borrowings. The approved limit for Rand Water was for R6.3 billion for the 2018/19 financial year, R8.3 billion for the 2019/20 financial year and R11.6 billion for the 2020/21 financial year.
  • Eskom’s foreign borrowing limit was granted to enable the company to raise debt for its capital expenditure programme and liquidity. Eskom’s foreign borrowing limit was granted for one financial year, expiring on 31 March 2019, for a total amount of R308 billion.

Since 1 April 2018, a borrowing authority and the corresponding limit was approved for the National Housing Finance Corporation (NHFC) for R450 million for the 2018/19 financial year, R351 million for the 2019/20 financial year and R331 million for the 2020/21 financial year. The application was approved for purposes of transferring liabilities (including borrowings) from the National Urban Reconstruction and Housing Agency (NURCHA) and the Rural Housing Loan Fund (RHLF) to NHFC to facilitate the merger of the three entities.

On 1 April 2018, South African Airways’ foreign borrowing limit request was rejected. In addition, Trans-Caledon Tunnel Authority’s (TCTA) borrowing limit for a project was rejected.

  • SAA’s foreign borrowing limit was rejected due to the entity’s high debt levels, which are unsustainable. In the interest of prudent financial management, the request was reject. The amount requested was R18 billion.
  • TCTA’s request for a borrowing limit on one of its projects (Berg River-Voelvlei Augmentation Scheme (BRVAS)) was rejected on the basis that more work needed to be undertaken by both the TCTA and the Department of Water and Sanitation in respect of preparatory work and the due diligence. The two parties were encouraged to finalise the preparatory work for National Treasury to consider the application again. The amount requested was R581 million.

Total borrowing limits and authority granted that are applicable for the 2018/19 financial year amount to R620.44 billion (please note that the Minister of Finance is only required to approve foreign borrowing limits in terms of the PFMA).

(1)Whether a certain official of the SA Revenue Services (Sars) was authorised to participate in an interview with the SA Broadcasting Corporation on 17 October 2018; if so, who authorised the specified person to participate in the specified interview; (2) whether the statements made by the person during the interview were authorised by the Commissioner of Sars; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) whether the statements made by the person during the interview are an accurate reflection of the status of the information technology (IT) systems at Sars; if not, (a) why are they not accurate and (b) what is the real status of Sars’ IT systems; (4) whether any disciplinary action has been instituted against the specified person due to the statements made during the interview; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The certain official was duly authorised by the Acting Commissioner of SARS to participate in the said interview. Aside from the Commissioner, Chief Officers comprise the top rung of SARS leadership. Historically, when the appointed Commissioner is unavailable, a Chief Officer is appointed to act as the Commissioner. A Chief Officer is expected to represent SARS at the highest levels, including at international events and in interviews with the media particularly when the subject matter falls within the Chief Officer’s mandate. The authority given by the Acting Commissioner was based on the understanding that a SARS Chief Officer and member of EXCO should be competent and able to fully address any matter of SARS culture, vision, strategy, policy and operations that arises in an interview and particularly when the issues relate to his/her portfolio of accountability.

2. Statements made by the SARS official during the interview were not authorised by the Commissioner of SARS in any event there are no means of ensuring that representations by SARS executives are approved by the Commissioner prior to any interview as interviews in their very nature are dynamic and not preemptive. Chief Officers of SARS are expected to be able to handle any matter relating to their area of accountability.

(3)(a) The statements made by the person during the interview did not describe the state of SARS IT and what is required to enhance the IT systems.

3(b) Although SARS IT systems are ageing and require continuous maintenance, they are currently stable, operative and serving our clients well. The SARS technical IT teams have the necessary skills to ensure we modernize our systems and SARS is committed to providing the required resources to enable us to eventually have the ideal technology offering. SARS is on record on the need to refresh its ageing ICT infrastructure and plans in this regard are underway.

(4) The contents of the interview have impacted on SARS and the issue of disciplinary proceedings is being considered. The most appropriate steps will be taken once a preliminary opinion has been formulated and formal discussions have taken place.

(1)With reference to the Auditor-General’s latest Annual Report, how does the National Treasury intend to cover the budgetary shortfall that will be created by the proposed writing off of R58 million in unpaid audit fees; (2) does the National Treasury intend to obtain a refund of the sum of R150 million assistance to be provided to the Auditor-General (AG), from those municipalities who have failed to settle their audit accounts and which have caused the need for such assistance to be given to the AG; (3) whether he intends to set up some form of mediation committee to attempt to find resolutions in the cases where disputes arise between the AG and his auditees to prevent the unacceptable situation that ensues when two government departments or entities employ the services of private legal practitioners to argue their respective cases before the courts of the country, such as recently happened between the SA Revenue Service and the AG and the Department of Water and Sanitation and the AG; (4) (a) what has so far been the total cost to the AG’s office for all legal fees and disbursements relating to litigation conducted by auditees against the AG in each of the past five financial years and (b) to which firms of attorneys were these costs paid; (5) (a) on what legislative basis did he rely to settle the accounts of municipalities who owe the AG’s office unpaid audit fees and (b) does he intend to now also pay other debts owed by municipalities to other debtors from the National Revenue Fund?

Reply:

1. The Auditor-General (AGSA) accepted the National Treasury’s offer for a full and final settlement of the accumulated outstanding fees in terms of section 23(6) of the Public Audit Act (PAA), Act no.25 of 2004, as at 2017/18. The AGSA does not receive direct funding from the National Treasury and as such, the National Treasury will not cover any budgetary shortfall arising from the write-off of unpaid audit fees.

2. In terms of section 23(6) of PAA, if the audit fee exceeds one percent of the total current and capital expenditure of such an auditee for the financial year, such excess must be defrayed from the National Treasury’s vote, provided that, the National Treasury is of the view that the auditee has financial difficulty to settle the cost. This excludes national and provincial departments. Therefore, based on these provisions PAA above, the National Treasury does not intend obtaining a refund for the R150 million assistance given to the AGSA on behalf of the municipalities.

3. The National Treasury (NT) and AGSA has well documented dispute resolution mechanisms in place to deal with technical and accounting cases where an entity disagrees with an audit finding of the AGSA. A situation that is occurring more frequently is where the AG and NT agrees on a case, but the auditee refuses to accept the final resolution and continues to challenge both the final opinion of AGSA and NT. The NT agrees that in most cases, state funds should not be used to litigate against the audit opinions of the AGSA, as these cases can be solved in the normal process.

4. The National Treasury does not have the information available, these costs and legal firms used must be obtained from the individual departments and public entities that have pursued the legal action.

5. The National Treasury has since the effective date of the approval of the Public Audit Act, Act No. 25 of 2004 (PAA), been assisting with the payment of audit fees of applicable entities and municipalities that, based on the view of National Treasury, are in financial difficulty. These payments are done in accordance with section 23(6) of the PAA, and are only done for audit fees that exceeds one percent of the total current and capital expenditure of auditees in financial distress. It must be mentioned that National Treasury has a specific amount appropriated in the budget for settling audit fees of struggling entities. Unfortunately, the budgeted amount is not always adequate to cover all the amounts owed to the AGSA. For this reason, the National Treasury has put forward measures to improve the payment of outstanding audit fees for auditees in financial distress in the amendments to the Public Audit Act.

(a) What number of public resorts were managed by Aventura Ltd before it was liquidated, (b) what were the specific reasons for the liquidation of Aventura Ltd and (c)(i) to whom were the public resorts that were managed by Aventura Ltd sold and (ii) at what price?

Reply:

DPE response

a) There were in total fourteen (14) public resorts that were managed by Aventura. Six of those resorts, which were seriously loss making were the first to be disposed of to different purchasers.

Then the remaining and better performing eight (8) situated at Badplaas, Blydepoort, Loskopdam, Swadini (Mpumalanga) Tshipise, Warmbath (Limpopo), Plettenburg Bay (Western Cape), Gariep (Free State) were sold to a single purchaser named Forever Siyonwaba Consortium.

b) Government had in 2001 as part of its restructuring policy taken a decision to dispose all the Aventura resorts. Hotel and leisure was regarded as non- core to Government. The decision to dispose was further underpinned by the fact that some of the resorts were seriously loss making. Aventura was disposed through a normal purchase and sale process however difficulties were encountered in concluding the process all together. The process was beset by land claims in some of the areas (e.g Blydepoort, Swadini and Tshipise) where the resorts were situated, incorrect description of the Aventura properties, e.g there were discrepancies in Aventura property description set out in the Deeds office and the inventory/schedule of those properties laid out in the Overvaal Resorts Limited Act 127 of 1993. These difficulties caused the disposal of Aventura to be protracted. Thus, against the background that the Aventura resorts were already sold even though difficulties in transferring some of them were encountered, in 2013 an optimal route to bring closure to the purchase and sale process was considered and liquidation was found to be appropriate. The Shareholder (Minister of Public Enterprises) then passed a resolution to liquidate Aventura.

(c) (i) the eight(8) resorts were sold to a company called Forever Siyonwaba Consortium

(ii) the Purchase Price for the eight was R200m.

Cardo, Dr MJ to ask the Minister of Economic Development

What (a) number of forensic service providers did the Competition Commission appoint to assist with dawn raids since 1 April 2015, (b) is the name of each forensic service provider, (c) number of dawn raids did each service provider conduct and (d) was the cost to the Competition Commission in each case?

Reply:

The Competition Act provides for the Competition Commission to enter and search premises of persons who may have information relating to an investigation in terms of the Act. These enter and search actions by the Commission are a vital part of the gathering of information on prohibited actions, including participation in cartel activities, price fixing and tender rigging and they constitute a highly specialised activity and hence trust in a service provider is essential.

The Commission therefore relies on proven expertise as the results of such actions in the form of the evidence gathered that are subject to challenge and scrutiny by the courts. I have been advised that the Commission has been trying to increase the number of potential providers and has been bringing in other service providers to ensure that there is adequate expertise.

Of the 12 enter and search actions that have been undertaken since 1 April 2015, three have been referred to the Tribunal for prosecution. Nine of the 12 are still under investigation by the Commission. In the case against the Furniture Removals Companies, 25 of the 30 respondents have already settled with the Commission for a total of R15 069 172.

Since 2008, enter and search actions have contributed to successful cartel investigations which have resulted in R463 million in settlements and penalties imposed by the Competition Tribunal.

Since 1 April 2015, there are five (5) forensic service providers that have been utilised, namely:

  1. Century Technical Solutions (Pty) Ltd,
  2. Exactech (Pty) Ltd,
  3. Matlama Consulting (Pty) Ltd,
  4. eCybersystems (Pty) Ltd, and
  5. Itsamaya Consulting.

Prior to 1 April 2015, the Commission had used the services of Exactech (Pty) Ltd, Matlama Consulting (Pty) Ltd, Cyanre, Computer LAB and Forensic Investigation Recovery Management (Pty) Ltd. Currently Century Technical and Exactect are still the preferred providers, given their expertise, but the other service providers are building their capacity.

A total of 12 enter and search actions have been undertaken since 1 April 2015.

Of these 12, each service provider participated in the following:

  1. Century Technical Solutions (Pty) Ltd - 12 of the 12 enter and search actions
  2. Exactech (Pty) Ltd - 11 of the 12 enter and search actions
  3. Matlama Consulting (Pty) Ltd - 4 of the 12 enter and search actions
  4. eCybersystems (Pty) Ltd - 3 of the 12 enter and search actions, and
  5. Itsamaya Consulting - 1 of the 12 enter and search actions.

Mulaudzi, Mr TE to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

Whether, with reference to the reply of the Minister of Public Service and Administration to question 141 for oral reply on 7 September 2018, his department and the entities reporting to him implemented the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council resolution that all persons employed in the Public Service as Assistant Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 9 to level 10, and that all Deputy Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 11 to level 12; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development implemented Resolution 3 of 2009. In implementing the Resolution, the Department confined itself to the condition set in paragraph 3.6.3 which deals with accelerated grade progression for salary levels 9-10 and 11-12 respectively. To this end, all employees from salary levels 9-10 and 11-12 who meet the below mentioned qualifying criteria are accordingly progressed/upgraded:

a) Twelve (12) years continuous service and should have at least obtained above satisfactory rating on his performance assessment; and

b) Fifteen (15) years of continuous service and should have at least obtained above satisfactory rating on his performance assessment

2. The National Prosecuting Authority implemented PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2012 in conjunction with the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) Circular 16/P dated 25 February 2013. All posts that were filled on salary levels 9 and 11 after the implementation of PSCBC, Resolution 3 of 2009 were re-graded according to the DPSA’s Implementation Directive. All employees who occupied those posts were thus upgraded into the salary levels 10 and 12 respectively.

3. Employees of Legal Aid South Africa are not appointed under the Public Service Act, 1994 but are employed in terms of Legal Aid SA Act 39 of 2014. Persons who are employed at salary level 9 and those employed at salary level 11 can be progressed to salary level 10 and salary level 12 respectively subject to the scope of pay progression of the job grading of a position and on condition that an employee’s annual performance review is good and scored at 80% and above.

4. Neither PSCBC Resolution 3 of 2009 nor Resolution 1 of 2012 has been implemented in the Special Investigating Unit (SIU). The pay progression model being referred to is not in use in the SIU as the SIU has its own grading system in place.

Reply:

The Department of Basic Education has implemented the Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council resolution for the upgrading of Assistant Directors from salary level 9 to salary level 10 and the upgrading of Deputy Directors from salary level 11 to salary level 12. The implementation was effected in August 2014 and backdated to 1 August 2012.

(1)With regard to Limpopo Department of Education Contract No. EDDP 182/142, Lebaka B Primary School in Mohlabaneng, was the school built within the contract period of 3 November 2010 to 3 October 2011; if not, what are the relevant details; (2) (a) what was the total monetary cost of the building project, (b) who was the contractor and (c) was the contractor paid in full; (3) (a) what are the full details of the (i) total cost of the furniture and (ii) furnishings delivered and dates of delivery of all furnishings, (b) why has this school been abandoned, (c) on what date was a security company appointed, (d) what is the cost of the security contract and (e) what is the name of the security company; (4) has any litigation process been instituted; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The school was not completed within the envisioned construction period of 11 months. The contract period started on 3 November 2010 as scheduled, but unfortunately the contractor fell behind schedule. The delays led to the situation whereby the contractor subsequently abandoned site. The project was re-activated in 2016 and Practical Completion was achieved on 11 September 2017.

2. The initial contract amount was R 15 956 400.00. During the period when the contractor abandoned site the school was vandalised. Accordingly, when the project was re-activated, re-measurements were done to determine the cost to complete the project and a Variation Order was approved on 7 November 2016 increasing the contract amount to R 17 721 946.21. MPPJ Property Development was the Contractor. The contractor has not yet been paid in full as Final Completion has not yet been achieved.

3. (a) Total cost of Furniture is R930 491.000 and the furniture was delivered in 2012 and in 2018.

(b) Lebaka B was built as an offshoot of Lebaka A where the school buildings were dilapidated and no longer hospitable. Security was engaged and the repairs were effected. There are plans afoot to bring in Gr R –Gr 3 to the school in January 2019.

(c) The security company was appointed for Lebaka B School on 01 June 2018.

(d) The security service provider was initially appointed by the Limpopo Department of Education to do security services at Mamaila Circuit Office. A variation order was prepared and approved for the inclusion of Lebaka B School for an amount of R33 524.30 per month.

(e) Mathara Investment CC.

4. Yes, there is a litigation claim for the alleged exhumation of graves on the school site during the construction process. The matter is currently being handled by the state attorney.

(b) The Department has a backlog in relation to the new and replacement schools, that is perpetuated by the constant influx of learners into the province. The Department has not achieved all its targets related to building schools, as indicated in (a) above, due to a number of reasons that have had an adverse impact on the delivery of schools. These include but not limited to:

• Budgetary Constraints;

• Under perfomance by contractors;

• Community disruptions; and

• Inclement weather.

2. The Department will not be forcing but engaging and encouraging the existing single-medium schools that have received a sufficiently large number of learner applications for admission, to offer additional languages and thereby become dual-medium schools. It must be noted that the process is guided by, amongst others, the number of applications to a school.

Whether there are any plans in place to ban microbeads in the country; if not, why not; if so, by what date will the ban come into effect?

Reply:

The microbeads in cosmetics and disinfectants have been highlighted as having a negative environmental impact. The regulatory control of both cosmetics and disinfectants is administered by the Department of Health under regulations in the Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectants Act, 1954
(Act 54 of 1972). The Department of Environmental Affairs is in engagement with both the Department of Health and South African Health Products Regulatory Authority, including providing comments on the amendment of cosmetics regulations to consider the phase-out of microbeads in cosmetics.

With reference to his reply to question 3135 on 15 November 2018, (a) who are the interested parties that his department may further consult and (b) will further research be conducted; (2) will his department consult other government departments regarding the regulations; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. (a) Various Constitutional Court cases have confirmed the principle that it is a constitutional imperative to facilitate public involvement in the legislative processes, which by implication includes the making of delegated legislation. If this important principle (which is sometimes referred to as participatory democracy), is not adhered to, the laws or regulations in question may be unconstitutional. Any proposed legislative proposal that gives effect to the South African Law Reform Commission Report on Adult Prostitution (Project 107) (the Report), will be subjected to a comprehensive and open public consultation process. By implication, all interested parties, who among others, will include organizations and establishments that represent persons involved in sex work as well as sex workers themselves, will be given an opportunity to raise their views. A public consultation process, because of its open and public character, ensures that everybody is given an equal opportunity to raise their views and acts as a counterweight to secret lobbying and influence-peddling.

(b) As indicated in the Reply to Question 3135, the Department is in the process of further researching aspects relevant to the Report in order to make legislative proposals that are best suited to our country.

2. The public consultation process discussed under paragraph (1)(a) above, will involve consultation with other Departments in the national, provincial and local sphere of Government due to the cross-cutting nature and implications of sex work. Any regulatory measure that deals with sex work and which may impact on the functions, resources or mandates of any other Department, will be drafted in consultation with the Department involved.

Mashabela, Ms N to ask the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation

What are the details of the Government’s policy position regarding the voting structures and powers of the United Nations Security Council and General Assembly?

Reply:

Honourable Member, South Africa's participation in multilateral institutions is guided by the country's foreign policy objectives based on its vision of "a better South Africa, a better Africa and a better world". Our foreign policy is informed by our constitutional values and principles, national values and interests and strategic considerations based on domestic and international imperatives.

Our participation is further aligned with an understanding of the nexus that exists between peace, security and sustainable development. Consequently, South Africa's approach and voting patterns in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the General Assembly (GA) resonates strongly with the African Union's (AUs) aspirational goals contained in the Agenda 2063 and its Ten (10) Year Implementation Plan of contributing to peace and security of "Silencing the Guns by the year 2020".

South Africa further upholds the principle that there could be no peace without development, thus the advancement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda Goals adopted by UN Heads of State and Government in New York in September 2015 is essential requirement to continental efforts towards advancing the achievement of the African Union Agenda 2063.

Additional information on voting structures and powers in the United Nations Security Council and United Nations General Assembly is provided below:

Voting structures and powers of the United Nations Security Council

  • Each member of the United Nations Security Council has one vote. There are two sets of decisions that are taken by voting, namely on procedural matters and non-procedural matters which the latter could be vetoed by the Permanent Five. The UNSC is the only organ of the United Nations which has been conferred with the power to take decisions with a binding force in line with the "Purposes and Principles of the United Nations" in discharging its duties of maintaining international peace and security.

Voting structures and powers of the General Assembly

The Government policy position regarding voting structures and powers of the United Nations General Assembly is guided by the following provisions of the United Nations General Assembly's Rules of Procedure, Rules 82 to 90 on Voting:

  • Each member of the General Assembly have one vote. Decisions of the General Assembly on important questions shall be made by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, for instance in matters pertaining to international peace and security, the election of the non-permanent members of the Security Council, etc. On the other hand, decisions of the General Assembly on questions other than those considered important that requires a two­ thirds majority, shall be made by a simple majority of the members present and voting, i.e. affirmative and negative votes only; abstentions are considered as not voting.

Cardo, Dr MJ to ask the Minister of Economic Development

What is the (a) total amount spent by the Competition Commission on the Market Inquiry into the Private Healthcare Sector since its establishment in 2013 and (b) detailed breakdown of the amount spent by the Competition Commission on services provided by external (i) economists, (ii) lawyers, (iii) expert consultants and (iv) a certain legal firm (name furnished)?

Reply:

The Competition Commission set up a Market Inquiry under the current provisions of the Competition Act, in 2014 to consider the state of competition in the private healthcare market, covering a large number of services across the value-chain.

An independent Panel was appointed by the Commissioner to preside over the market inquiry, chaired by ex Chief Justice Sandile Ngcobo, and it engaged Experts as panellists and a number of specialists to support the Chairperson and Panel of Experts.

The Commission decided that a mix of skills would ensure that the Panel oversees and evaluates both legal (administrative, procedural) and technical (healthcare, health and competition economics) aspects of the inquiry. In addition to the mix of skills, the Commission also had to consider the independence of the various panel members. In particular, the Commission had to seek experts with relevant sector-specific experience that would not result in a conflict of interest. Details of the individual panel members appointed by the Commission to oversee the HMI are reflected in greater detail in Table 1 below:

TABLE 1: Panel members

Mulder, Dr CP to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

(a) How many (i) public servants and (ii) Ministers have received legal and financial support from the state annually since 1 January 2014 during court cases arising from the execution of their duties and (b) what were the costs related to each specified case; (2) in how many cases have such civil servants and Ministers forfeited their administrative protection; (3) whether the financial expenses associated with such forfeited cases have been recouped from the said civil servants and Ministers; if not, why not; if so, what is the extent of the financial expenses recouped in each case; (4) whether he will make a statement about the matter?

Reply:

I have been informed by the Office of the Acting Chief Litigation Officer as follows:

(1)(a)(i) 526 public servants; and (ii) 4 Ministers; and (b) the statistics concerned regarding the costs, have not been kept separately, because they are managed in the normal processes and kept with all other files, which are allocated to a State Attorney if and when such an application is brought. The costs that could be sourced, are indicated in the tables below.

(2) None. In the normal processes in State Attorneys’ Offices, such statistics are not kept separately, but are kept with all other normal files and allocated to a State Attorney if and when such an application is brought. In respect of the Heads of Department, Chief Financial Officers and Members of the Executive Council who applied for State cover, no separate record or statistics of such matters, were kept.

(3) No, because I have been informed that it is mostly SAPS members who are faced with this situation; and SAPS recoup the money themselves. The SAPS members sign an undertaking to pay before the matter is referred to the State Attorneys’ Offices and SAPS executes it internally.

(4) No such statement is necessary.

Regarding the Mahikeng State Attorneys’ Office, the information as received from the Office of the State Attorney, is that the State Attorneys have represented Ministers in all claims. This was however in the official (normal) capacity and not in their personal capacity. The State Attorney, Mahikeng is therefore not aware of any Minister who forfeited administrative protection. Therefore the Head of the Office informs me that there are no such cases.

The Office of the State Attorney has also represented individual officials in their official capacities who were cited as co-defendants with the relevant Minister. The State Attorney is not aware of any of those officials who forfeited their administrative protection. Therefore the Head of Office informs me that there are no such cases.

As the Office has not kept statistics of this nature before, it is not possible to provide a breakdown of the costs incurred in respect of all these cases. In this respect, I am informed that there are no costs to report on, as there were no such cases where the Minister, Member of the Executive Council (MEC) or Officials have applied for legal representation in their personal capacity.

Whether, his department subsidises any industries in the country; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) which industries, (b) where is each industry located, (c) what does each industry produce and (d) what is the monetary value of each subsidy?

Reply:

No, the budget of the Economic Development Department is not used to subsidise any industries in the country.

The Industrial Development Corporation (“IDC”) does provide concessional funding to a number of industries and sectors, including its Black Industrialist Programme and Gro-E Youth Programme, to encourage youth entrepreneurship. This support is provided across the country. Further details of IDC programmes may be found in the Integrated Report on the IDC’s website: https://www.idc.co.za/images/2018/IDC-IR-2018-Final.pdf.

In the past EDD has raised R95 million for the Downstream Steel Competitiveness Fund utilising funds paid over to the National Revenue Fund as a result of penalties imposed on ArcelorMittal South Africa for its role in cartels in the steel industry. The funds raised by EDD has been used for concessional funding to provide support to qualifying smaller competitors and downstream players. Funding has been approved for companies in Gauteng, Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and North West.

 

Similarly, EDD has raised R250 million for the Agro Processing Competitiveness Fund utilising funds paid over to the National Revenue Fund as a result of penalties imposed on Pioneer Foods for its role in the bread cartel. Funding has been approved in 42 deals to provide concessional funding for companies in Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Free State, North West, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.

The work of EDD in competition matters has resulted in R4.5 billion raised from private companies to support small and medium business and black-owned businesses in a number of industries including agriculture, construction, manufactured consumer goods and spaza shops. The impact of this support has been across the country.

Reply:

The matter had come to the attention of the Minister via media reports. It has to be pointed out that there is no legal requirement for the municipality to inform the Minister in respect of expenditures incurred on municipal accounts. Nevertheless the Minister had tasked the relevant Departmental officials to liaise with the Municipality and the Provincial Department of Sports and Recreation in Limpopo province to establish the facts on this matter and to recommend the appropriate action(s) to take. The engagements with the municipality are ongoing.

van der Westhuizen, Mr AP to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)What is the reason that public technical and vocational education and training colleges that offer qualifications from Level 2 to 4 deny entry to learners who graduate at Level 2 from skills schools and who wish to improve their qualifications beyond this level; (2) whether her department will be exploring options for such learners to be able to improve their skills and formal qualifications at public institutions; if so, (a) what would be required of such an exploratory study and (b) by what date does she expect to report regarding her findings in this regard; (3) whether she will be engaging with both the Department of Basic Education and her department in order to create a learning pathway in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) what options are there currently for such learners to improve their formal qualifications on a full-time basis?

Reply:

1. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges cannot deny access to students based on the fact that they come from skills schools. All students who apply to colleges must meet the institution’s admission criteria. Some applicants might not meet the academic criteria for their vocational or occupational programme of choice, because the skills schools are essentially special schools focussing on practical skills and do not offer NQF level 2 qualifications.

2. Where students do not meet the academic criteria, 45 TVET colleges will from
January 2019 offer the Pre-vocational Learning Programme (PLP), which is designed to strengthen the learning foundations of students who wish to study further in the vocational qualifications offered by the chosen college. This is a one-year programme comprising of Foundational Language, Foundational Mathematics, Foundational Science and Life Skills (which includes basic computer literacy). Such students may then ideally articulate into occupational qualifications offered at NQF levels 1 - 2, or even the National Certificate (Vocational) [NC(V)] if the learner is in a position to and wishes to pursue a broader vocational pathway.

(a) The Department is currently in the process of configuring the suite of programmes to be offered in the Community Education and Training (CET) colleges so that other options will be available to learners from skills schools. There are 25 skills schools in Gauteng and 22 in the Western Cape, while the other provinces have between 1 to 5 such schools. The Department will be requesting its Regional Managers to engage with Provincial Education Departments (PEDs) to link these schools to TVET and CET colleges so that opportunities for these students can be mapped out as a collaborative initiative.

9b) The process is in its early stages and therefore data cannot be provided at this stage.

3. Engagements with the Department of Basic Education are already underway on a number of programmes and qualifications affecting the two Departments. The overall intention is to create a comprehensive and integrated public education system, which addresses issues of duplication, as well as gaps in learning pathways.

4. Depending on the competencies of the learners from the skills school, they may access the NC(V) qualifications (if they have the equivalent of a Grade 9 or the General Education and Training Certificate for Adults), N1 programmes or NQF level 2 occupational qualifications offered in TVET colleges. They may gain access either directly or through the PLP programme. Colleges are required to administer baseline tests in language and Mathematics to make this determination.
