Hon Speaker, I would like to respond to two comments from the DA.
First of all, when we passed the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Amendment Bill, I pointed out that, although the DA voted for the amending Bill, they had not voted for the original BEE legislation.
Today the Leader of the DA tells us that, in fact, the DA supports BEE. But a few days ago hon James told Power FM that, actually, the DA supported something called diversity economic empowerment. Now, I think we have a right to know: Is it to BEE or not to BEE, or to "DEE or not to DEE"? I don't know. [Laughter.]
I think that the DA is as confused in its fight against the legacies of apartheid as it was about its fight against apartheid. [Interjections.]
Secondly, I want to make a comment about the hon member who talked about the Saldanha industrial development zone, IDZ. Let me tell you that there is absolutely no delay whatsoever in the process. We went through a process of extensive consultation with the communities and the people of Saldanha about the establishment of the IDZ. If the hon member had cared to take note, the Cabinet statement in August indicated that Cabinet had agreed that the Saldanha IDZ would be established.
We are now in the process of developing the legal documentation for the operator's permit, and that will be rolled out to the operatives, together with a public information campaign in due course. There is no delay.
The Saldanha IDZ will join the stabilisation of the clothing industry, the roll-out of fishing co-operatives, the replacement of the Real Enterprise Development, RED, programme - which the provincial government of the Western Cape chose to close - with Seda outreach programmes and many other factories that have been opened. These programmes are among the deliveries of real jobs and real economic development, which the national government has brought to the people of the Western Cape. Thank you very much. [Applause.]
