Chair, I move without notice on behalf of the DA:
That the House-
1) congratulates Rowing SA on securing the rights to host the 2023 World Rowing Masters Regatta at the Roodeplaat Dam;
2) recognises that this is the first world rowing event ever to be held in Africa;
3) notes that the championships will boost tourism by bringing thousands of athletes and tourists to South Africa;
4) calls on the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries to ensure the integrated control of aquatic weeds at the Roodeplaat Dam so as not to put the championships at risk.
