Parliament’s oversight model to be improved
22 June 2011
National Assembly Speaker Max Sisulu has hit out at absent MPs and ministers who do not reply to questions.
He plans to beef up Parliament's oversight model to keep ministers and departments in check.
Opposition parties also slammed the planned expansion of parliamentary offices and the building of a new debating chamber as unaffordable.
Sisulu delivered Parliament’s one-point-six-billion-Rands budget vote speech in the House.
