House Chairperson, in his state of the nation address, President Jacob Zuma stressed the serious need for infrastructure development. This underlines the necessity that the Department of Public Works should have spent at least 50% of its budget on infrastructure by the end of September 2012. Yet, according to the department's second quarterly report, the actual expenditure by the end of September was only 19% of the budget. That means that 31% of the funds for infrastructure were not used. Minister, why did you not utilise these budget funds?
