Chairperson and members of this House, I also do not serve on this committee, but I have the following to say. The Bill before us seeks to amend provisions relating to the establishment, amalgamation and dissolution of the sector education and training authorities, Setas. It is an important step to ensure that Setas around the country are better placed to serve our skills development needs.
The UDM supports all initiatives to align Setas to the important skills development agenda. There are many instances in which there was duplication of work in the Setas. Sometimes you were left questioning the relevance of some of them to the country's skills development needs. We support the call for better alignment and improved efficiency and effectiveness of Setas. The UDM supports the Bill. [Applause.]
