Thank you, Madam Speaker, and thank you, hon Minister. Indeed, hon Minister, the programme was started particularly for poverty alleviation. However, have we not arrived at a point at which we can say that the skills that have been acquired in both the Working for Water and the Working for Fire programmes are now required, not on ad hoc basis but on a permanent one?
With regard to these valuable skills that these young men and women have acquired in both these programmes, have we not arrived at a point at which we can say that in addition to creating work and alleviating poverty, these skills are now needed on a permanent basis in South Africa?
We particularly need to augment our water resources on a daily basis in South Africa, and therefore have a more ongoing programme on clearing alien invasion, and fires have now also become a permanent feature in our country. So these skills too are required on a more permanent basis. I would like to know whether the exit strategies couldn't take this into consideration. Thank you.
