Thank you very much, Madam Speaker. I would like to say to hon Minnie that, as I explained earlier - thank you very much, hon Jordan - this report will be tabled in Parliament. I also said that I do not really want to discuss it now. Let us rather wait for the report and take it from there. In terms of the role of the Public Service Commission, I think they definitely know what their role is and have already ...]
- they have already done quite intensive investigations on areas relating to service delivery, better co-ordination of service delivery, accountability and all that at a comprehensive level. I am sure they won't hold back on the work that is required. However, let's not pre-empt the outcome of the commission report but rather look towards it, because I think then there would be a discussion and debate about the issue around the nature of co-ordination and integration between committees. I don't believe that there is any proposal from any quarter that suggests that one committee oversees the work of another, but rather looks at greater collaboration and integration, and I think that would be appropriate to consider. Thanks.
