Hadebe, Mr TZ to ask the Minister of Environmental Affairs

With reference to the product design and waste minimisation plans of her Department which certain official’s (name and details furnished) claims will be carried out by raising awareness, (a) what other measures will be taken to reduce waste, and (b) how will awareness reduce waste?

Reply:

a) The following measures will be implemented to promote waste reduction:

  • Developing capacity through a specialised programme which upskills agri-stakeholders to minimise food loss.
  • Compilation and updating of packaging design guidelines with the Department of Trade and Industry, Industry Associations and SABS, and a voluntary grading scheme with marketing value for brand owners can improve the design of packaging and increase collaboration between brand owners and recycling companies.
  • Formalising the packaging industry extended producer responsibility plans to enable and support the unification and alignment around packaging design guidelines and other packaging industry initiatives, a mechanism which formalises Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).
  • Implementation of packaging design guideline once it has been developed.

b) The awareness initiatives are additional measures to enhance waste minimisation and promote the recycling economy. These measures aim to create a joint platform for communicating messages to improve consumer behaviour and industry practice towards pro-recycling in the waste sector by focusing on specific areas, including:

  • minimisation of food waste by eating ugly fruit;
  • separation of waste at household-level (e.g. promote the incentives and/or Buy Back Centres, re-inforce the benefits of not contaminating paper waste with food waste, etc.); and
  • safe disposal of waste (e.g. promote and create awareness on the e-Waste drop-off centres).

The awareness raising measures will increase consumer awareness and demand for recyclable products that are packaged in an environmentally friendly manner.

Khawula, Ms MS to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

Whether (a) her department and/or (b) any entity reporting to her own land; if so, in each case, (i) where is each plot of land located, (ii) what is the size of each specified plot and (iii) what is each plot currently being used for?

Reply:

a) The Minister hereby submits the land register which carries the DWS immovable water infrastructure. The land assets are grouped per type of use and are based on representative land areas that the DWS requires to host, access and maintain these assets. The fair values were calculated using representative land costs for urban and rural settlement areas, open rural land and tribal land.

The DWS is currently busy reconciling this register with the available title deeds, which is a time-consuming process, considering that not all title deeds and Surveyor-General (SG) diagrams are electronically available and that many of the tribal land areas still need to be formalized. The land asset register has been developed on the basis of control other than ownership.

The type of land ownership comprises: (Land Asset register attached)

  • State owned land where the DWS or DPW own the land due to permanent use such as:
  • Dam basins to store water and to cater for increased dam levels during flood events.
  • Administrative buildings such as offices, residential housing, workshops and stores.
  • Special facilities such as pump stations, water treatment works, reservoirs and wastewater works.

Servitudes on private and tribal land to carry the following types of infrastructure and to provide access to this infrastructure for operation and maintenance purposes:

  • Canals
  • Pipelines
  • Tunnels
  • Access roads to dams and other buildings

Servitudes for “backwater” events, when water levels in rivers exceed the normal flood lines due to the backwater effect of dams. These are only applicable upstream of dams.

b) The land area was calculated using the definition of control, meaning the minimum area that is required to accommodate the above water storage at dams, access to bulk distribution infrastructure and flood events. This considered representative servitude widths, where these are not available from title deeds, and representative unit costs of land.

 (i) Location is available on a GIS; attached tables summarize the location per DWS scheme, area office and operating cluster.

(ii) Size of each item on the land register is shown in square meters in each table.

 (iii) Use of the land is listed under the column “Facility Type Description”.

Profile picture: King, Ms C

King, Ms C to ask the Minister of State Security

What measures has his department put in place to mitigate the impact of cyber-attacks in the country?

Reply:

1. South Africa’s response to cyber threats and in particular the role played by SSA in mitigating the impact of cyber-attacks in the country is articulated in the National Cyber-security Policy Framework (NCPF) for South Africa approved by the Cabinet in March 2011.

2. The Cyber Security Centre (CSC) in the SSA has been established as an initiative of Government to anticipate where cyber-attacks in the country or to national critical information infrastructure (NCIIs) may originate with a view to adapting defence strategies in order to mitigate the impact and respond to new cyber threats. The aim is to provide cyber situational analysis and a coordinated approach to incident response; and to promote cyber security knowledge and awareness.

3. The CSC underlines Government’s determination to provide enhanced and integrated readiness to mitigate cyber security threats and attacks in the country in a bid to maintain the country safe and secure. The current centre is meant to provide a coordinated response to cyber incidents affecting national security and in doing so it is envisioned to be augmented by other structures in the country such as the Government CSIRT (Gov. CSIRT), Cyber Security Hub (CSH), National Cybercrime Centre (NCC), Cyber Command (CC) and sector CSIRTs.

Whether he has engaged with (a) the Minister of Higher Education and Training and (b) the Minister of Police regarding this matter; if not, why not; if so, what was the nature of the engagement?

Waters, Mr M to ask the Minister of Home Affairs

(1)Whether her department is taking steps to ensure that there are more voting stations situated at overseas venues, where a sufficient number of South Africans live and are registered; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) what has she found to be the number of citizens that constitutes a sufficient number?

Reply:

1. Yes. In respect of registration of voters and voting arrangements outside of the Republic, the Electoral Commission works in partnership with the Department of International Relations & Co-operation (DIRCO). Section 33(3) and 33(4) of the Electoral Act 73 of 1998 presently limit points of voting outside the Republic to embassies, high commissions and consulates. This is so because the Electoral Commission is dependent on DIRCO’s available human resources and related infrastructure for registration and voting arrangements outside of the Republic. In the meantime, the Electoral Commission has undertaken a review of procedures for voting outside the Republic in national elections following the 2014 national elections, and plans to approach DIRCO for the consideration of the possible expansion of the number of voting facilities outside of the Republic for the 2019 national elections, where diplomatic missions proved to be inadequate.

2. The operational details of this proposition including the threshold for number of registered voters per voting facility outside of the Republic are yet to be discussed and determined.

What steps has he taken to ensure that all three spheres of government work in the spirit of cooperative governance to mitigate and to prepare coherently for the current and worsening water crisis in the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality?

Reply:

The Department of Cooperative Governance (DCOG) established a multi-sectoral structure that coordinates the drought and water scarcity situation in the country. The National Joint Drought Coordination Committee (NJDCC) is operational and responsible for the coordination of drought and water scarcity conditions, response and intervention measures. The committee is made up of the following key stakeholders:

    • Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA),
    • Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF),
    • Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS),
    • Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRDLR),
    • Department of Health (DOH),
    • Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA),
    • Department of Labour (DOL),
    • Department of Transport (DOT),
    • South African National Defense Force (SANDF)
    • Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) and
    • South African Weather Service (SAWS)
    • Provincial Disaster Management Centres

Additional to the NJDCC, the Provincial Intervention Task Teams (PITT), which comprise relevant organs of state within the three spheres of government, were established to directly engage and consult provinces and municipalities to interrogate their mitigation and response plans and also mobilise resources in line with each organ of state’s mandate. The Western Cape Province was visited and engaged to mobilise resources to address the drought and water scarcity situation. It is important to indicate that the Provincial Disaster Management Centers participates in the NJDCC to ensure proper coordination within sector departments, support to the municipalities and provide progress reports on the situation.

The NJDCC reports to the Inter-Ministerial Task Team (IMTT), led by the Minister of Cooperative Governance, Mr Des Van Rooyen, on drought and water scarcity conditions for political oversight and guidance response and recovery measures within the country. The department further coordinates and ensure integration through the MINMEC structure.

Mackenzie, Mr C to ask the Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services

With reference to his reply to question 3078 on 30 October 2017, (a) which processes are being amended to improve the SA Post Office’s ability and capacity to handle the increased volumes, (b) what is the cost of implementing these processes and (c) by which date will these improvements be completed?

Reply:

I have been informed by SAPO as follows:

(a) 

  • A total review of all operational activities was conducted and a duplicated process was identified. As a result, the function of sorting and dispatching mail items from Johannesburg International Mail Centre (JIMC) to Post Offices, has been moved to Mail Centres which are allocated around Gauteng. This has assisted JIMC in placing additional 20 staff members into their operations. The exercise had no cost implications.
  • Additional six PC work stations were purchased at a cost of R90 000 to increase Capturing and Assessing processes. Ten printers were acquired at a cost of R90 000, to replace broken ones and for the new work stations. This has already been concluded.
  • SAPO introduced dispatches on IPS system to Durban International Mail Centre (DIMC) and Capemail International Mail Centre (CIMC) in order to replace the aged Track and Trace system. CIMC and DIMC have already been implemented at no cost. They intend expanding this process to Witspos, Germiston and Tshwane Mail Centres at a cost of R245 000. This will be finalised in December 2017.
  • The entity have started a Re-engineering process to establish crewing levels in line with a 24/7 operational window. They are currently operating night shift and weekend operations on overtime basis which cost R13 463 632 from April to November 2017, for JIMC, DIMC and CIMC.
  • They have improved on the capturing process of items on the IPS system. SAPO used to capture the weight of items at an inception stage. This restricted processing outputs as capturing could only be done at work stations that had scales affixed to them. Only six work stations had scales affixed while the other 45 did not have scales. By moving the capturing of weights to a back office administration process, they are now capable of higher outputs on their capturing process of items as they are not restricted to using work stations with scales. No cost attached to this process and it has already been implemented.
  • SAPO have reviewed the use of the Conveyor belt system within JIMC, in order to integrate the use of the belt with their current floor layout and process flow. They intend using the belt to eradicate demand of physical labour whereby, SAPO will use the belt within their process flow. An amount of R30 000, will be required to get the belt running.
  • SAPO are currently in the process of changing the Expedited Mail Service (EMS) deliveries to Speed Service Couriers (SSC), in order to fulfil EMS Co-operative agreement. EMS must be delivered to the door and SAPO currently do not have capacity in terms of vehicles and drivers to fulfil this mandate nationally. In order to eradicate duplicate processes the door deliveries will be done by SSC. The process has already been implemented in Western Cape (WC), Eastern Cape (EC) and Kwa-Zulu Natal (KZN). SAPO still need to conclude rollout to Central, Wits and Northern Regions. They will require an additional five IPS work stations at Speed Services within these regions at a cost of R125 000.

Reply:

Not all employees in the Public Service are required to submit financial disclosures of interest. In terms of the Public Service Regulations, 2016 only Senior Managers are required to submit financial disclosures every year by 30 April for the previous financial year. The new Public Service Regulations, 2016 also gave the Minister of Public Service and Administration the power to identify other categories that must disclose. The Determination on other categories of designated to disclose their financial interest and the directive on the form, date and financial interest to disclose on was signed on 16 March 2017. This determination identified other categories to disclose financial interest below the level of SMS:

  • Employees earning an equivalent of salary level 13 and above through the OSD or personal notches
  • Employees appointed at salary level 12 including those employees earning the equivalent of salary level 12 through the OSD
  • Employees appointed at salary level 11 including those employees earning the equivalent of salary level 11 through the OSD
  • Employees in Supply Chain and Finance Units, irrespective of their salary level

The submission date of 30 June 2017 and 31 July 2017 for the above-mentioned groups was extended to 30 September 2017. The e-disclosure system however remained open until 31 October 2017 for electronic submission of financial disclosures for these groups. Departments have until 31 December 2017 to finalise the checking of the information disclosed for the 2016/2017 financial year.

Senior Manger’s disclosure are submitted via the Head of Department to the Public Service Commission. All SMS in service as at March 2017 complied with the submission of their financial disclosures and the disclosures were forwarded before 31 May 2017 to the Public Service Commission

a) In the 2016-2017 financial year:

4 members of SMS were identified by the Auditor-General as having companies registered on the Central Supplier Database this is still under investigation. The PSR, 2016 prohibits public servants from doing business with an organ of state but did allow for 6 month transitional arrangement meaning doing business with an organ of state is only prohibited with effect from 1 February 2017.

b) The process of disclosure for levels below SMS have not yet been concluded therefore it is not possible to provide the information for (i) and (ii) (aa) and (bb)

Reply:

1. The ownership of land by the State Security Agency (SSA) is information that forms part of the broader operational strategy of the agency and therefore as a matter of policy the SSA does not disclose such information.

2. It should however be observed that the SSA is held accountable on such matters by the Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence (JSCI).

With reference to her reply to question 2244 on 6 September 2017, (a) what are the (i) ages and (ii) grades of the learners who fell pregnant, (b) what number of the learners have returned to school after giving birth and (c) what professional background training does the Learner Support Agent who must assist the specified learners to cope with their pregnancies have?

Reply:

a)  The reply was informed by the official data extracted from the Education Management Information System (EMIS). EMIS data on learner pregnancy is generally disaggregated by school and can provide grades of learners upon request, however this will not include their ages. The data shows that 34 learners were reported to be pregnant at Masiqhakaze Secondary while Tipfuxeni Secondary indicated that 5 learners were pregnant. The request for grade specific data has been submitted and this will be shared at the next meeting.

b) Although the Department encourages parents to ensure that learners return to school shortly after giving birth, the Department does not collect data on the number of leaners who actually return to school after giving birth.

c) The Learner Support Agent (LSA) is generally an out-of-school youth (similar to a community Child Care Coordinator, but in this case, specifically for the school) who supports learners with basic services including homework assistance, home visits, and access to learner support and learner health and wellbeing services. They do not directly assist learners to cope with pregnancy. LSAs refer learners to professionals who would grant them access to services where needed. Some LSAs have a professional background in Social Work or Child and Youth Care Work.

America, Mr D to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) What are the objectives of the Road Accident Fund Youth Driver Development Programme (b) from what date has the programme been running, (c) what is the total number of persons who have gone through the programme since its inception, (d) how are candidates for this programme identified, (e) what have been the costs of this programme in each financial year since its inception and (f) how does the Road Accident Fund benefit from this programme?

Reply:

(a) The objectives of the Road Accident Fund (RAF) Youth Driver Development Programme are to promote road safety; contribute to the reduction of the number of fatal crashes involving heavy vehicle drivers with no professional training; contribute to skills development and job creation for youth between the ages 23 and 34; and to discourage the culture of buying licenses amongst the youth for purposes of looking for employment, (b) the programme has been running from the 2016/2017 financial year, (c) a total of 150 learners were admitted to the programme since its inception, (d) candidates for this programme are identified and recruited through social and mainstream media and the RAF also partnered with youth formations such as the National Youth Development Agency and the South African Youth Council for recruitment and selection purposes, (e) the costs of this programme in the 2016/2017 financial year was R1 499 908.00 and for the current financial year an amount of R2 000 000 is budgeted, and (f) the RAF benefits from this programme by ensuring that more drivers are licensed, thereby reducing the risk of road crashes involving public transport and commercial vehicles, which in turn reduces the RAF’s liability to pay claims related to bodily injury or death resulting from such road crashes.

(c) In accordance with the established practise applicable to parliamentary questions and guidelines contained in the document titled, “Guide to Parliamentary Questions in the National Assembly”, I will not provide names of each contractor appointed for each project. The document referred to specifically states the following:

 

Questions are to be framed as concisely as possible. All unnecessary adjectives, references and quotations are omitted. Names of persons, bodies and, for example, newspapers are only used in questions if the facts surrounding the case have been proven. As the mere mention of such names could be construed as publicity for or against them, it should be clear that this practice is highly undesirable. If a question will be unintelligible without mentioning such names, the Departments concerned are notified of the name (-s) and this phrase is used: ".......a certain person (name furnished)”.

(3) (a)(b) & (c) The table below refers to the number of houses that required rebuilding or residual repairs, the amount spent on the repairs and the communities in which the houses are located and the contractors who undertook the repairs.

The current practice is based on the Education Labour Relations Council Resolution No.4 of 1995 which stipulated the learner: educator ratio of 40:1 at primary and 35:1 at secondary public ordinary schools. This also informed the principle of maximum class size used in the Post Provisioning Norms (PPN) which ranges between 35 and 37 in Grades R-9 and the maximum of 40 in Grades 10-12. In addition, the Regulations Relating to Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for Public Schools Infrastructure (GN R920, 29 November 2013) regulates that the maximum number of learners in a class must be 35 in Grade R and 40 in all other grades.
